Hello, my name is Shelby Cannon. I am 18 years old and a freshman in college. I live in Waynesville, NC but plan on moving to Johnson City, TN in the fall 2012 to attend ETSU for their pre-veterinary program. I have always wanted to be veterinarian since I was a little girl. I had never entered a pageant before, and I must say I am completely surprised that I took home the title. I am so honored to hold the position of you're new Miss Teen North Carolina Int'l 2012! This year is going to be full of fun appearances, raising awareness, volunteer work, and making new friends! I am an advocate for therapeutic horseback riding!
