Hey, I’m Caroline, and I just graduated from the University of Virginia (UVA) with a BA in English and Religious Studies. Over these last four years, when I wasn’t doing school work or hanging out with friends, I could be found working as a Classroom Consultant and ESL Assistant, interning with both the local government’s Human Resources department and a College Counseling office, and, of course, rooting for the Cavaliers!
I was born in Arlington and am excited to be back in the area after four great years in Charlottesville. My favorite activities are hiking, tennis, traveling, seeing movies and shows, relearning how to ski, and spending time with my amazing family and friends.
During the next year, I hope to finish up some art projects, learn to golf, catch some Caps games, and master scaling the cliff faces in Part A of the Billy Goat Trail.
Hi! I’m Laura and I recently graduated from Colgate University, a small liberal arts college in upstate NY, with a BA in Sociology and Anthropology. Even though my college years are over, I am excited to join the ‘real world’ and start a new chapter of my life.
This includes the creation of youngDCliving–a blog dedicated to sharing my love of design, art, food, and travel–all based in my hometown of Washington, DC. I am using this next year to take prerequisite courses and apply to accelerated nursing school. Eventually I want to become a Nurse Practitioner.
My interests include: traveling, cooking, painting, reading, decorating & design, and fitness. My fellow blogger, Caroline, and I met as neighbors when we were 5 years old and have been best friends ever since.
