These are the words that describe Ganon Ritchie the best.
My story is a very diverse one. I was born in Seoul, South Korea. When I was four months old, I was adopted and was brought to Indiana by my parents, Don and Pat Ritchie. One of my goals is to one day travel back to South Korea and learn about my birth culture and find my birth parents.
When I was in high school, music was my life. I was involved in Marching Band for five years. My senior year, I was drum major of the entire band ensemble and section leader for the euphoniums. Being involved with music has taught me about time commitment, work ethic, and working together as a group which has made me who I am today.
I initially applied to Purdue University because my passion was Pharmacy. I learned that Pharmacy was not what I wanted to do the rest of my life, so I came to Purdue and I am majoring in History, with a new life choice in becoming a lawyer. I eventually want to become an Immigration Law as my full-time because of my diverse experience as a Korean-American. While at Purdue, I am involved with the Music Department in both Concert Band and Athletic Band. I also have a job with Housing and Food Services which I began in 2007 and have since become Student Supervisor. I am graduating in May 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in History.
