Hi, I’m Tatum.

I’m 18 years old from Houston, Texas. Although I do love big cities and the south, the lack of any significant topography excluding hills and lakes can get extremely boring. I’ve gone to Aspen every summer since I can remember and spent 2 months at wilderness hiking in Utah so I love mountains and hiking.

I’m terrified of anything that swims thanks to Jaws but I do love to swim. Due to an incident in December I wasn’t in a good enough headspace for me to properly finish my English class with a passing grades preventing me to graduate. But it was a blessing in disguise because without the car wreck I wouldn’t have found this program.

I will miss my bed and chicken nuggets but hopefully its worth it! (I’m sorry for the horrendous grammar like I said I didn’t pass English). I’m excited to meet everyone!
