Zach Anderson grew up next to many people with the last name Anderson. As a kindergartner, it was impossible to know which locker was his. When he’d line up alphabetically by last name there were so many Andersons in front of him he’d still be last. His mom would bring him to Target and it’d take four tries before the right meds for the right Andersons were found. To say the least, being unique became important to Zach Anderson. Especially when he met another Zach Anderson who ended up being his neighbor and who, in fact, had the same birthday as him AND was a bit of a trouble maker…teachers would raise eyebrows at Zach when Zach had done nothing. Then, to top it off, there was a criminal named Zach Anderson who did some unspeakable things in Minnesota. This is NOT that Zach Anderson. Every corner Zach Anderson turned he’d run into another Anderson, or a Zach Anderson look alike, or even another Zach Anderson. It was perplexing.
With this in mind, answering the question- what makes us unique? Has been a personal journey of Zach Anderson’s starting with finding a new name- Zeej.
