About Me: Sarah Dunbar edet 454

This is a photo of me from this past summer. I chose this picture because it is one of the only pictures I have that shows my free spirit and my love for the beach and being on vacation.

My Crazy Life

I grew up in a small 3 stop-light town called Kenbridge located in Lunenburg County, VA. This is roughly 35 minutes away from the North Carolina state border and about three and a half hours away from Radford.
These are my siblings Noah and Olivia.

A little about my family and our crazy lives starts with divorce of my parents four years ago, but fun fact- they are both getting remarried this summer and we could not be happier!

In addition, the birth of my triplet cousins Lilly, Emma, and Abby changed our lives. They're my miracle babies. I am so very super obsessed with them, so here are a few pictures of them.

Lilly and Emma are on the left and Abby is on the right. Abby has Cerebral Palsy and Dystonia.

Pet Peeves

My biggest pet peeve is that I cannot stand when people do not clean up after themselves in a kitchen or a bathroom. Those are supposed to be the two cleanest rooms in the house, in my opinion.

Another thing that really bugs me is mosquitos. They seem so pointless to me. All they do is fly around and bite us, leaving us with itchy bumps. In fact, all bugs/insects bother me.

What I Find Important

  • My family is the most important thing in my life. I have a huge family and without my parents, siblings, cousins, grandparents, and everyone else I would not be where I am today.
  • My friends at home and at Radford. They're my favorite. We do everything together and still have sleepovers with no shame.
  • The Outer Banks (my favorite place in the entire world). I go here every summer at least twice for vacation, and at least two other times to spend time with friends. My summers always end being spent in OBX.
  • Music. Music is my motivation, my go to, everything. When I need to get myself prepared for anything there is always a song to set the mood and help motivate me to do those things. If it was not for music, I'm not sure I could drive or ride in a car for more than ten minutes.
  • An Education. My education and learning useful information is very important to me. Pointless classes is something else that bothers me, because there are so many useful things that can be taught instead of subjects we will never think or talk about again. In my opinion, if we were only taught information about our chosen degree, we would be much more educated in that field.

My Education

Like most of us, I went to preschool, elementary, middle, and high school. My junior year of high school I received my CNA from Southside Virginia Community College and graduated from Central High School of Lunenburg with an advanced diploma in 2015. When I graduated high school, I was positive I wanted to pursue a degree in nursing and work as a neonatal intensive care nurse, but I changed my mind. After seeing how many scares my cousin Abby had been through in the NICU, I did not want the lives of premature babies in my own hands. That experience led me to want to pursue a degree in Early Childhood and Special Education. By doing this I hope to help children become wiser, stronger, and more independent. It has always been my dream to work with children and I love that I have found my career path.

In 5-10 Years...

In 5-10 years I plan to have graduated from Radford University with my masters and have began working and doing Early Intervention with my aunt. It has always been a goal of mine to help her with her business, "Amazing Kids of North Carolina." My dream is to live in Manteo, North Carolina while doing that, but if that does not work out I hope to be teaching in Roanoke and living there, as well. I know it seems like I have two completely different aspirations in life, but I genuinely love doing both and would be happy with either of those. Wherever I am, I hope to be changing the life of a young child and opening them up to more knowledge and experiences.
