Christy considers his father his role model because of his wide range of interests and abilities, including hunting, fishing and gardening. Two of Christy's favorite foods are ones his dad might find while on the hunt — bear meat and deer cutlet. When he is not woodworking or playing with his pet rabbit, Gingerbread, Christy likes playing soccer and competing in math and science competitions. He is on his school Mathcounts team and participates in the National Junior Classical League for Latin. In the future, Christy hopes to study computer and mechanical engineering. Christy previously participated in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in 2014.
