My name is Joey Benevento, and I was born and raised in Kirksville, a small college town in Northeast Missouri. I am currently a student at Emory University in the class of 2017, working towards majors in English and perhaps Spanish. During the summer I work for the Kirksville Department of Parks and Recreation. Since I was two years old, my biggest obsession has been with fish, and I jump at any opportunity to eat seafood, to visit an aquarium, or, especially, to go fishing. Another important interest of mine is singing, and I am a member of Emory Concert Choir and chaiTunes A Cappella. I also enjoy playing tennis, taking walks, reading, and chasing squirrels.
