Where were you born/grew up at?
Adryanna - I grew up and still live in southeastern Massachusetts, right in the heart of a fun little place called the Bridgewater Triangle. If you’re into superstitious, creepy stuff, look it up! I swear that my childhood home was haunted.
Amanda - I was born in the same hospital as my mother and my own children, in the exact same spot where we still live - at the bottom of the Blue Mountains, in Sydney Australia.
Brandon - I was born in Jacksonville, Florida, but I didn’t start developing memories until I was already in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. By the age of 8, my mom and I moved to a farm outside the small town of Tisdale, Saskatchewan in Canada. At 16 years old, I found my way full circle to Jacksonville.
Brittany - Tennessee and Tennessee. But I've lived in Texas (briefly) and England, so that's cool.
Debi - I grew up in the suburbs outside of I’ve Baltimore, and after living in Florida through college, I came right back. It’s hard to move when several generations of family live in the same place.
Ilona - I was born in Sydney and grew up in various locations in Sydney. We lived at the Villawood Migrant Hostel while Dad was building a garage for us to live in on a block of land in Liverpool. Later we moved to the Bankstown area. I have very fond memories of living during a time when life was simple, and our expectations were modest.
Jay - Born in New South Wales, Australia, but about half the people I meet or serve ask me where I come from or when I got here, because apparently, I have an accent. I’ve been asked if I’m American, south African, Swedish, Canadian, Irish (closest, 5 generations ago maybe), English, the list is looong.
Kieran - Born and raised in northern Canada. Because it’s so remote that far north, everything is pretty small and quiet compared to down south. That has its advantages, though it can also get boring.
Laura - I was born in the lovely state of Washington and lived there until I was fourteen where I moved to Idaho. I miss the rolling hills and mountain views the plains of South Dakota just doesn’t have.
Serena - I was born and grew up in the whangarei area, which is in the north of the north island of New Zealand. I grew up on my parent’s farm with my two sisters and two brothers.
Vicky - I was born in Ashington, in the county of Northumberland in England. I grew up in Western Sydney, Australia. I now live in the Blue Mountains. I sadly do not have a Geordie accent.
