Joel Dulashanti
My name is Pfc. Joel D. Dulashanti, a sniper with 4th Squadron, 73rd Cavalry Regiment. I enjoy running and am just getting back to doing it for the fun of it.

I recently competed in my first Track and Field competition and I am excited about doing more of that - quite possibly getting on the Paralympic team. I sprint and do long jump. Other recreational hobbies include scuba diving and cycling. The 2014 Nantucket 5K was be my first 5K as an amputee.

I am somewhat of an artist, so I also paint and cook. I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to have been all over the world. I am a fan of Anthony Bourdain and thoroughly enjoy Southeast Asia.

I am a college graduate and my education pursuits are flight school and grad school. I love politics and aspire to either educate or serve the people of the city that I live in as best as possible: either in the Mayor's office or city manager's office.
