I'm Shaley Dunn. I am a Christian, and I'm a 17 year-old senior. I love being a cadet in the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) and doing military activities such as CAP Encampment and the summer programs at West Point, the Naval Academy, and the Air Force Academy. Soon, I will earn my solo wings for flying a Cessna 172 by myself in an airport traffic pattern.... I love NASA and outer space, and watching movies and TV shows is a big hobby of mine as well as swimming and working on creative writing. I'm excited to be working on achieving my 1st Dan in Tae Kwon Do! More
Hello! My name is Shiloh Dunn and I'm a Christian :) I'm 14 and also a freshman in high school. My hobbies are drawing (color pencil, shading, digital art),baking, and photography. I love Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars and enjoy horseback riding. I'm a big animal lover and have 2 dobermans, 1 cat, and 14 snails; I hope to be a macaw trainer or do ...something with birds in my future career. I love TKD and hope to do well in my first cycle! Good luck everyone!:D More

Grateful for someone saying yes to mentoring me tonight, now I just need to have a mentee.  What do we talk about?  Do I get a list of appropriate mentor topics? Let them pick? Pick a topic out of a hat? I'm also wondering where the test is so I can start preparing for it.  Pretty sure I'm just missing it somewhere.  Testing is this  Saturday, so I... hope it pops up soon!

Today was the first day of vacation. The reason I didn't journal last night was because it was late we had dinner and I never got around to it. Today I was playing with my cousins in the ocean on boogie boards and waves. We are about to go eat dinner so I don't forget to journal so till tomorrow hopefully bye.

I was born in Yarmouth, Maine. As a kid had a lawn mowing business, worked in a lumber yard and on the back of a lobster boat. I always knew that I wanted to be a Doctor. I didn't get into medical school the first time. Therefore, I went back home and lived with my parents for the year, worked in a biotechnology company, took a Paramedic course and... got a Golden Retriever named Georgia. I re-applied to medical school and got in. I met my wife at the University of Vermont College of Medicine. We then moved to Rochester NY where we were for seven years. We had three children while in training. We then moved to Albany, NY in 2010 after my training had finished. We lived outside of Albany for three years, then moved to Cornelius. We have been in Cornelius since late in 2012. I currently work at Levine Children's Hospital in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, my wife Sara also works at LCH as a Pediatric Hospitalist. Our children are now 11, 14, 15 years old and go to school in Cornelius.  More
