Meet Nicholas Radford: PR Content Creator

Meet Nick Radford, one of this year’s new Content Creators! He is 15 years old, and this is his second year with TPS. He has been homeschooling all his life. His classes will include AP Physics, AP World History, Bible Survey, Spanish 3, and English with Western Lit. Nick lives in Florida with his mom, dad, three older brothers, three dogs and two guinea pigs. Nick’s passions are swimming, chemistry, reading the Kane Chronicles, the color green, rap music, and Fanta. When he grows up he wants to be some kind of doctor or surgeon because of his interest in chemistry.

He is super smart and nice and funny, which, in a way, reminds me of myself. Something I noticed is that he is super patient, and didn’t get embarrassed when I asked weird personal questions. I remember when we were chatting, he was telling me about his brother’s national public speaking trip. He had to tag along with his family across multiple states and sit for what felt like ages while listening to his older brother talk. It was so boring, you could’ve given him a stick and he’d be happy for hours.

But the whole ordeal helped him a lot to learn to not complain about things (something I still need to work on), because he knew it wouldn’t help. It also helped him fall in love with reading, which he did a lot of during the trip.

His favorite Bible verse is Psalm 23:4: “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”

Meet your green-loving, Fanta-glugging, Super Bowl-watching Content Creator!
