Matthew Dillon is a seventh grader with a passion for geography. “The history itself is really interesting and it’s fun to learn about“, says Matthew. However, his fascination with history started at a young age. Matthew memorized every president when he was five. In case you’re wondering, out of all the presidents, dead or alive, he’d most like to meet Abraham Lincoln.
Since Chloe was a runner-up at her school’s geo bee back in the day, she went head-to-head with Matthew over some basic skills. He definitely won but graciously offered some sage advice for any other aspiring geography bee winners. According to Matthew, just keep studying and be confident.
