Another aspect of my life that you may or may not know is that prior to coming to Asheville School four years ago, I obtained my entire education through homeschooling. Part of that homeschooling included my family traveling throughout the United States and, in some cases, around the world. Wherever we travel, I learn about the people and the events that may have happened at that place. I went to places such as the Oregon Trail and learned about the hardships that the travelers experienced and how they overcame them. I studied how the Civil War, Revolutionary War, and other major events may have changed this country in ways you have studied, but also in ways you may not.
I have learned about technology and pioneers such as Edison, Ford, and Marconi who lent their expertise to this country. Through my travels I have met different people, and learned about many others. From these travels, I have gained a sense of humility about and gratitude toward people who contribute to our American society.
NOTE: This was written by a quite close friend of mine, Nathan Doane, and I didn't ask for permission to post it (yet)... but every single flattery should be delivered to him...
