Brief Biography

My name is Brandon Perry, and I am a secondary education major with a focus in history. I aim to become a high school teacher who hopefully teaches a subject focusing on the 20th century. Whether the subject matter is strictly American history or extended to the world, the 20th century has always struck prominent to me. My interests expand to cross country running and cycling. I have participated in cross-country running since the 7th grade. Ever since my first competitive race, I developed the runner's high and fused that into my personality today. Since my days of high school, I had signed 4 death waivers, two for skydiving and two for an obstacle race known as Tough Mudder. History is tied with thrill and excitement, as it is never filled with a dull moment. Rash decisions and impulsive motives pollute every century. For the unknown never being predictable, history will always keep my attention.
