Which State Is Your Heart In?
by Khadija Leon

"Sweet Home Alabama" or "Empire State of Mind?" When it comes to the United States, you'd find tons of songs written about each one. While these singers and musicians put their heart into these songs, aren't you curious to know which state your heart is in? From the culture to the people to the food, which state do you belong in?

Although the United States is one country, it's obvious that many of the states and regions would differ from each other. As the third largest country in the world, you wouldn't expect the atmosphere and ways of living to be the same in New York and as they are in California, two states that are 3,000 miles apart. Each state has their own distinct culture, but which one calls to you?

The northeast states are known for their fast-paced life and business mindset. If you're a person who likes the bustle of a big city, you might be suited for states like New York. The west coast is known as the land of the creatives. With a laid-back atmosphere, you'd be sure to adopt a "don't worry, be happy" mindset. Rather than the east or the west, does your heart belong in the hard-working mid-west or the fun-loving south? There's only one way to find out! Put your heart into this quiz and we'll tell you which state it belongs in!
