Zachary Palmer

Outdoor Hobby: Rock Climbing, and Water Wading. But I would much rather skydive.

Rainy Day: I usually read books about other people in other cultures (Anthropology). But I play Zelda too. ;)

Excited for STEP: Because you and your cell phone need a break from each other, your relationships with your TV is unhealthy, you consider Grand Theft Auto an outdoors game. I want you to get to know people, and elements of nature you may have never been in touch with before. It's all about experience and friendship.

Favorite food: Chicken Fajita Quesadilla. Muy bueno!

P.S. Nakupenda. I hope you can join us this summer!
