Sports Fanatic With a Food Addiction


Hey, I'm Ian Sparkman, or as some of my friends call me, Sparky. I'm in 11th grade and my Dad is in the Army. He and my Mom are currently stationed overseas in Estonia while I live in Texas with my Aunt. I've been a lot of places in my life since being born in Oklahoma City such as Texas, Washington, Arizona, and many more! I love Sports of all kinds, whether I'm playing or watching. My favorite hobby, however, is singing, which I passionately do all around my house.
