Enjoying hobbies such as soccer, and anything music related, Ryan McCarthy is currently a senior attending Wethersfield High School.
Growing up in the town of Berlin, CT for the first twelve years of his life, Ryan describes his childhood as being near perfect. He enjoyed playing the bass and other activities such as baseball and soccer. Both sports he played throughout his youth.
Living in Berlin, Ryan made many friends and acquaintances. Many of which he continues to keep in touch with to this day. Making friends was easy; who would want to leave?
During the start of his sixth grade year, Ryan’s family found themselves in Windsor, CT. Moving everything to live in a different town proved difficult. Going from many close friends in his town of twelve years to none was fairly unaccommodating. Ryan found himself a group of friends he stayed close with for the year he resided in Windsor.
Moving to another town proved difficult. Especially when done a second time.
Ending his sixth grade year in Windsor, his family moved a last time to Wethersfield, CT. He spent the summer keeping in touch with his friends from Berlin, which was very hard due to distance. Besides knowing a couple of neighbors, he wasn’t exactly sure what to expect from the middle school.
His first day he became acquainted with a lot of people and made friends all throughout middle school. He now attends Wethersfield High School.
Currently, Ryan has finished his senior year soccer season after playing for the team 4 years. His passion for the sport still shows as he’s planning to actively participate in the sport as an adult.
After high school, Ryan is planning on attending a technical school to study and apprentice as an electrician. He currently takes a construction management class and enjoys the work. He describes it as being fun and fulfilling for him. He’s currently looking into joining the union of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW).
