My name is Zac Carden, and I am 16 years old and a junior in High School. I have been homeschooled since I was in seventh grade. I live in Northport, Alabama. Some of my hobbies include: snow skiing, playing trumpet, doing film photography, playing video games, and playing table tennis. I have lived in Alabama; Columbus, Mississippi; Corpus Christi, Texas; and Las Vegas, Nevada. I love to travel and some of my favorite places to go are: Maggie Valley, North Carolina; Sedona, Arizona; Las Vegas, Nevada; and San Antonio, Texas. I like to listen to music and have really eclectic taste, but my favorite band is Reel Big Fish. I have been a vegetarian my whole life and my favorite type of food is Indian food. I am currently training for the Mercedes Marathon in February, which I am doing with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team in Training. This is my first year to be old enough to do an official Team in Training marathon but I have already done two half marathons (the St. Jude's Half Marathon and the Nashville Country Music Half Marathon). This year I am also doing the Early College Program at the University of Alabama.
