My name is Benjamin Anderson, but I like to be called Ben. I was born in Westerly, Rhode Island, but grew up in Stonington and Pawcatuck, Connecicut. My favorite food is homemade cheeseburgers. Something you may not know about me is my middle name is Farnham (very early American, English) because it's my Mom's middle name but it's originally from my great-great-great-great-grandfather Benjamin Farnham Lincoln who was a General in George Washington's army. This past summer I volunteered at the Mystic Seaport in Mystic Connecticut, as a member of the Demonstration Squad. This semester I hope to get as far as I can in my courses so I can take really interesting classes later in college.
