11/17/2020: Matthew J. Carrion-Ortega

My name is Matthew J. Carrion-Ortega and my parents are from Puerto Rico. I was born in Florida but raised in Charlotte. My favorite memories are times I spent with my family on the lake because it was always nice. I want to live on the coast of North Carolina after high school because there's a lot of history there. 

My ideal job is to do something I'm passionate about and that pays well but I still don't know what it is I want to do in the future. My songs represent my taste in a lot of things. My hobbies are skating, fishing and playing video games even though I don't count them as hobbies. I'd love to go to Hawaii because it's just a beautiful place. I also want to go to Canada to see Niagara Falls.

I started watching this survival show and I really enjoy it. They throw people in the Artic with certain items and tell them to survive. In the situation I think I would survive at least a week because I learned how to clean water and how to make a shelter but I want to learn how to hunt. I think I would be able to kill a deer but not gut him. I like spending time with my dogs. I have 3 dogs, a Yorkie mix with a pen, a Chihuahua with a Yorkie, and a German Shepard. They're all really cool except the German Shepherd who bullies the other dogs.
