Name and describe a memorable place you’ve been.

The most memorable place Nathan has been to is Israel, because that was the first time he traveled outside the U.S. with his friends, and they explored Israel together. For 2019, Nathan hopes to visit either Mexico City for the Dia de los Muertos Festival or Philadelphia for the American Public Health Association’s annual conference.
