Nathaniel loves soccer, listing it as his main interest, and wishes he had more time to practice. This summer, he’s trying out for the Vardar East Premier soccer team, one of the best teams in Michigan. He also competes in track and chess, and is a first degree black belt in karate. Nathaniel has eclectic taste in music that includes Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Michael Jackson, Tupac Shakur, Aerosmith, Lorde, Pharrell Williams and Imagine Dragons. The place he would like to visit most is Japan, not only to experience the culture but also to see the contrast between the neon city lights and the natural landscapes. Nathaniel previously competed in the 2012 Scripps National Spelling Bee.
