Shelby Hartin was born and raised in southern Aroostook County in a tiny town called Crystal, population 269.
After graduating from the University of Maine in May 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in English and Journalism, she relocated to Bangor. She now works at the Bangor Daily News as a customer service representative slash features reporter and is making a new home for herself by discovering what Bangor has to offer.
Every week she will do something new and blog about it. It might be attending an art exhibit or checking out a new restaurant. It might be visiting a local museum or going on a tour offered in the area.
She’s going to find things that people settling into their home of greater Bangor might enjoy — and she wants your help.
