Quizlet: If you could learn to do anything, what would you learn?
Cameron: I wish I could learn how to dunk. Unfortunately, it is pretty tough to teach height and vertical jumping ability, so I may have to settle for lay-ups for now.
Q:Who was your most memorable teacher and why?
C: Mr. David Norman was my AP Psychology and Macroeconomics teacher in high school. Mr. Norman provided a great classroom environment with high-quality humor. I hate to admit it, but Mr. Norman was also one of the most intelligent teachers that I have ever had. He knew what students struggled with and tailored his lessons to fix the issues that they had.
Q: Who's taught you the most?
C: My dad. Like most parents, he did not teach me as much academically, but the life lessons that he has taught me (over and over) have been invaluable.
Q: What was your favorite subject in high school?
C: Journalism. It was a great opportunity to converse with a diverse set of people, as well as gain skills in storytelling and presenting.
Q: What's the most interesting article, blog or book you've read recently?
C: Lying by Sam Harris. This short book gives insight on why people lie and why people should stop lying. I’m not sure I agree with the entire piece, but it has some interesting points.
