2: Symbols | My father was in the military in North Carolina, so that is where my family lived until I was in first grade. We moved to Wisconsin and that is where most of my family resides. This is important because my father takes a militaristic approach to discipline and how he handles situations. | The Green Bay Packers have been a big part of my life since I was young. Even when we lived in North Carolina our family watched them, and now they are my favorite team.
3: This represents my family because we value academics and my mother is a teacher, as well as two of my grandparents. I believe that academics can help me be anything I want and it can take me places. | Outdoors is a good representation of me. I like to fish and just be outside all of the time. My family also travels up north and chills at the cabin. The outdoors is a good escape for me.
4: It is a norm for my family to go to church. We are not able to go every Sunday, but we try and go as much as possible. Respect is a huge value in my family. To receive respect, one needs to give it, and thats what my dad in particular values. | Values/Norms
5: One of the expectations/norms in our family is that my brother and I get good grades. We have to study a lot in order to achieve this. My parents value this because they want to see us both succeed and do good things in the future. With bad grades you might not want to get into the college of your choice, which could throw off your career path. | Integrity is another one of the main values in our household. My parents have preached it since I was young, so now it is ingrained in my head. Doing what is right when no one is watching is really tough. I slip up sometimes, but I always think of how they taught me the value of integrity and it helps me get back on track.
6: This defines me because I am really into fishing and like to go a lot. My favorite type of fishing is musky fishing because I get a big adrenaline rush when I see one and actually reel one in. I also enjoy going fishing with my father. | I have been playing basketball since I was young and it is one of my favorite sports. I love playing for Kimberly because it is so competitive and we have good athletics. | Material Culture/Technology
7: Since I grew up in North Carolina I naturally like the Duke Blue Devils. Their coach is legendary and I enjoy watching them on TV. Every year I look forward to the Duke vs. North Carolina game. | Golf is the sport I am the best at and I like it the most. My grandpa taught me how to golf when I was young and I have picked it up and enjoyed it ever since. This year our team should have a good chance of going to state.
8: Free Pages | I plan on Attending the University of Minnesota next year. I'm not sure what I want to study yet but I am thinking something in the mathematics field. I picked this school because they have really good academics and they are not too far from home.
9: I like to hit the slopes in my free time and ski. My favorite spot to go is Granite Peak. My friends and I usually go for a day and ski the entire day. I hope that in college I get enough free time to go skiing occasionally.
