The GNA Insider

Cameron Valaitis
My name is Cameron Valaitis. I was born on March 15, 2002 and am currently a junior at Greater Nanticoke Area. I have two brothers, along with three cats and one dog. My elder brother is 18; the other is 18 months old. Currently, I am involved in National Honor Society and Spanish Honor Society. On the side, I volunteer at the Glen Lyon food drive.

My childhood was very good, involving school, family time, vacations every year, and fun every day. On these vacations, I got to go to Maryland, South Carolina, North Carolina, New York, Florida and Louisiana. Visiting all of these states gave me an idea of what life is like outside the city of Nanticoke.

During my teen years, my life consisted of school, and continuing to go on a yearly vacation. In the summer of 2015, I went on a Carnival Cruise to Mexico, Belize, and Mahogany Bay. This trip gave me a chance to see the world and how other people live on a daily basis. I got to eat some unique foods, go on tours, and see beaches with the clearest water possible. My teen years continued, and my life continued to develop. My younger brother was then born on March 23, 2017. This came as a life changing experience to me, and over time I came to enjoy having a younger brother.

This last summer began with me helping out at the final field day at the old K.M Smith building, and then attending my brothers graduation. I then went on three vacations. The first and second vacations were spent with my family in Tennessee and Virginia, but my last vacation was spent with my brother and my friend. On this trip, we went to New Jersey.

Now in my junior year, I have chosen to join journalism, instead of wood shop, and type articles for The GNA Insider. I joined due to the fact that this class sounded interesting, and that it was something different from everything else I have ever done during my life. My plans for this year include to continue doing my best and to never give up. After I graduate, my plans are to attend college and study medicine to become a pediatrician.
