Where are you from/where did you grow up?
I’m from Greeneville, TN. Don’t miss that extra “e” in the middle. It was named after Revolutionary War hero Nathanael Greene, not the color green. Fun fact, Greeneville was the capital of the short-lived State of Franklin in the 18th-century. Also, there is still a cannonball in the front of a church downtown - left over from the Civil War.

University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN - Computer Science
East Tennessee State University, Johnson City, TN - Computer Science
