When life gives you lemons make lemonade.

About Me.

My name is Ty Kirkland, I live in a family of 6 people including me. My other family members are my Dad (Brian), my Mom (Brandi), and my siblings Bryson, Mary, and Josiah. I have lived in Lugoff for almost my entire life, the only other place that I have lived other than Lugoff is on Lake Wateree. The influential people in my life are my entire family, they influence me with everything they do and say.


If I had to think of myself as one characteristic I would have to describe myself as smart. I am not the smartest person, not even close, but whenever there is a problem I try to think my way out of it or I try to avoid it altogether.


For my hobbies i enjoy playing an instrument in band, I also like to play video games occasionally, but usually i just like to sit around the house. Either helping my family or going out to help my Grandfather.
