Humans of Northwood: Turner Jackson ’23

I was born in Charlotte, North Carolina but grew up in Hong Kong. Growing up in Hong Kong was fantastic, I experienced different cultures and religions.  It was a safe environment that allowed me to run through the streets independent and free. I matured and became independent because of these past experiences. I decided to come to Northwood at 15 to challenge myself in a new environment and to develop on and off the [soccer] field. In my free time, I speak to family and watch college or NFL football. My favorite subjects are Physics and History. I am extremely passionate about, soccer but my main goal in life is to find something that makes me happy and live a fulfilling life. My time here at Northwood has been pleasant; everyone has made me feel welcome, I have made lifelong friendships and I am really enjoying it here.
