Player of the Week: Tarah Hamilton (tarirae)

Sparkly nails and a shiny, positive attitude!  From the very beginning, this new Munzee player has been eager to lend the community (and Team Munzee) a helping hand.  This week’s Player of the Week is Tarah Hamilton, player name Tarirae!

Who are you?
Tarah Hamilton (tarirae)
Where in the world do you live?   
Alliance, Ohio USA
How long have you played Munzee?  
Technically I signed up over a year and a half ago but never played. I actually started playing about 6 months ago.
How did you find Munzee?  
I was on the phone with a friend telling him that I needed a way to get my kids outside and keep ME busy at the same time. He suggested Munzee and explained what it was. After downloading the app, I noticed there was not much in the area and scraped the idea. It wasn’t until a year later that I was deleting apps on my phone and looked at it again. I saw there were about 10 close to me and searched for them. I was hooked after that!
What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
The amazing places I find. Sometimes it’s a restaurant I’ve never been to or a park I didn’t know existed. Recently I made my first trip to downtown Pittsburgh, Pa just to get a MVM garden. It was only 14 degrees that day, and kids were in school, but it was a wonderful day trip. Even though at one point I couldn’t feel my fingers through my gloves anymore, and was yelling “45 points!” through chattering teeth, I still had a smile plastered on my face. 
What is on your wish list?
I would love to get 10k in one day. I know around here that would be impossible… for now, so I hope to make a trip down to the Franklin, TN and go for the gardens there. My other is maybe a recruiter badge (hint hint) Since I started, I have talked about Munzee so much that I have gotten at least 8 people to try it and a few of them hooked. 
Tell us about yourself!
I am currently a stay at home mother of two young boys (6 & 8) and an indie author of the book “Copperback”. I have recently done some freelance writing for Munzee including the new webpage (if you find a misspelling, I blame my editor!) My oldest son has ADHD and struggles with stepping away from his comfort zone of electronics and games. Munzee has been a big help in showing him that he can use technology while keeping him physically active while we hike around town. My youngest son now gets excited anytime he sees a QR code on anything and begs me to scan it for points. Usually we try to go out on the weekends and find a place on the map we have never been before. 
Other hobbies include;
Outdoor photography with my Canon Rebel, crocheting anything I can, and writing my second book as well as short stories. I also have started doing nail art and helping make nail polish with a friend of mine. I keep an Instagram (@tarirae) of new polishes and nail art tutorials.
