Hi! My name is Dominic and I am from Akron, OH. I have always loved being outdoors, especially in the woods. I grew up near the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and have always loved exploring new trails and seeing all the plants that lived in the area.   I feel very at peace walking amongst trees and especially sitting in the branches of one that I am able to climb.This is why I have chosen a tree (although poorly drawn) as the central image in my coat of arms. Although my future plans do not involve studying plants professionally, I would love to have a good basis to explore plants and botany as a fun and relaxing hobby in the future.
