About This Quiz

Someone once said it's good to remember where you come from and to celebrate it. Because wherever life takes you, whether it's just a block or two down the street or all the way around the world, you had a starting point and that helped shape who you are and how you see the world. As much as people are all the same deep down, when it comes to fundamentals, the place we grew up does shape a lot of who we are. If you grew up in Maine there's a good chance you like lobster a lot more than someone from New Mexico. If you grew up in Minnesota you're probably way better at driving in the snow than someone from Arizona. And you know a California native just has a way better chance of learning how to surf than someone from Kansas.

Wherever you came from it had its upsides and it had its downsides, and no doubt you made the best of it while you were there. No matter where it was, though, we bet we can figure it out f you answer a few simple questions about yourself and your time there. Take the quiz and see for yourself!
