Writer/PCS Profiles Team

Hello, my name is Malayna Shiels and I am currently a senior. I am a Navy brat, my dad is in the navy and my mom used to be in the Navy as well. I have been to twelve different duty stations. I’ve been to Massachusetts, Louisiana, Georgia, Virginia, Florida, Rhode Island, Guam, California, Maryland, Florida again, Pennsylvania , and Maine! I would have to say that is probably my favorite duty station. I am currently stationed in Maine. I love to play soccer, hike, be outside, write poems, listen to music, and read. I play soccer for my school and also help with creating the set for the school play. I also currently volunteer with Big Brother Big Sister. I have five chickens and a dog.
