17-year old Hunter: 30 Days of Hope

Enjoys playing video games, cooking, reading and watching movies


ROANOKE – Hunter is a vivacious and friendly young man. He thrives with physical activity and time spent in the great outdoors. On a pretty day, you might find Hunter doing flips on the trampoline, skateboarding, playing paint-ball, snowboarding, playing basketball or throwing a football.

If it’s time to watch “the big game”, the 17-year old will be rooting for the Pittsburg Steelers or cheering for the Miami Heat on the court.

His passion for action doesn’t preclude him from being able to enjoy the quieter moments and he would make a great fishing or hunting buddy. He adores all dogs but has a special place in his heart for boxers, and hopes to one day own a pet snake. In his leisure time, Hunter enjoys playing video games, cooking, reading and watching movies of the horror or comedy genre.

He has a good time at school and gets along well with both teachers and his peers. Spanish is his favorite subject. He plans to attend college and has a few ideas of his where he would like to go. In the future, Hunter would like to become a chef, and his signature dish will be deep fried catfish.

Others describe Hunter as sweet, affectionate, compassionate, and happy. He likes to stay busy and wants to “get out in the community to have fun.” Are you ready for a fun-loving adventure with Hunter?
