Posted by in Contributor Biographies

My name is Daniel , I am 22 years old, and was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina. I was diagnosed with slow processing speed in my sophomore year of high school. I am currently in my senior year at East Carolina University, pursuing a major in Recreation and Leisure Studies. I want to do something related to outdoor recreation, because I love being outdoors and discovering new ways to enjoy what nature has to offer. I want to help others discover whatever passion they may have for the outdoors.

Meghan’s Story

Posted by in Contributor Biographies

My name is Meghan, I am nineteen years old, in my second year at East Carolina University, and an aspiring nursing student. I was diagnosed with dyslexia and a attention deficit disorder during my senior year of high school. I never fully understood why I still struggled with academics. To compensate for my lack of academic expertise, I focused on things that I excelled in, such as friendships, horses, cheer-leading, and clubs.
