One of my favorite parts about Phoenix People is that each profile contains a video where the person profiled names their five favorite reasons for loving living in the Valley. Thank you to everyone who has been featured on the site. It’s been a pleasure getting to know you and share your contributions with people in Arizona and beyond.
