Name and describe a memorable place you’ve been.
For my senior year spring break, I, along with 7 of my friends, loaded up and drove to Zion National Park in Utah. Zion was one of the most breath-taking places I have ever been. The views of the mountains and the wildlife that we saw were picturesque. We camped out for 4 days and hiked during the day. I loved the mountains, so it was one of the best trips I have ever been on.
Do you have a nickname? How did you get it?
Pretty much all of my close friends and family call me Nate (which is obviously short for Nathan). It’s kind of weird, because I still introduce myself as Nathan, even though I probably respond quicker to my nickname out of habit.
