My name is Megan Johnson and I was born in Anchorage 17 years ago. Anchorage has been my only home What and where will I be in five years is an interesting question. I will be finishing college and becoming a certified Architect. As far as 20 years down the road, I see myself having a family and successful career as an Architectural Engineer, but it is hard to predict the future. A few things additional things about me, my favorite song is “Leave out all the rest” by Linkin Park. My favorite food is pasta! Three places I would love to travel to: Belize, Norway, and Italy. I spend my free time during the school year by participating in sports, Gymnastics and Bowling, and hanging out with friends. During both the summer and the winter I go to the family cabin in Willow.
The Iron Dog travel team is a great opportunity. I have several reasons for being included on the team. I am part Alaska Native and I have not had the opportunity to visit other places around Alaska. I would like to learn more about my Alaska Native heritage by traveling with the Iron Dog travel team in Alaska. I want to gain a better understanding of my heritage and experience a piece of our Alaskan history. Another reason is I have done a little snow machining around our family cabin and would like to have a better appreciation and understanding of the Iron Dog race.
