Why Badger?

That's what my classmates in school call me. One of the guys among us is great at coming up with nicknames; one day he called me "The Badger." I said "Badger? I didn't go to Wisconsin." And he said, "No, no. The Badger is a ruthless animal - they just keep pounding away at something until they get what they want. That's how you are with this school stuff - you're just relentless."

After his explanation, I decided I like the nickname, so it's stuck ever since.
