What does it mean to be a Southernite?

​There is no set in stone definition or criteria of what/who is a Southernite. Southernites face their fears, overcome challenges, they think of others before themselves, when put in difficult situations they handle it with grace and a level head. A Southernite does what they can to help others and they live out a life beaming with optimism and positivity.
