Iconoclast View: Knowing I can always come home to Ada

By Torie Wright - Icon fall intern

I’d like to start my internship at the Ada Icon with an introduction: "Hi."

In more seriousness, my name is Torie and I’ve lived in Ada nearly my entire life. I was born on the west coast, in Washington State, but my parents and I moved to Ada (where my dad was born and raised) before I was a year old. My 22nd birthday is quickly approaching, and Ada is still my home. No matter where I end up, Ada will always be my home.

A lot has happened to me in this place: I became a big sister, I made lifelong friends, I had a baby. Those things, among the uncountable others, make it hard to leave.
