Originally from Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania where I attended The Baldwin School, an all-girls private school, for thirteen years, I came to college without a clue of not only what I would major in, but also where I would find my place in the first new environment I had ever had to adjust to since I was five years old. During my past three years at Trinity College, I have learned more about myself than I have in my entire life. I discovered my passions, where my strengths lie, and where I truly see myself after graduation. I became a Sociology major mostly because I’m nosy. I like to talk to people, understand them and their stories. However, I also have an unyielding desire to fulfill my creative outlet in some way. These two interests correspond well in my hopes to pursue a career in fields such as event management, PR and production design.

WMGS 101 – The Final Paper That Really Made Me Think

WMGS Final Paper I started my time at The Baldwin School in September of 1999. After visiting several private schools, my parents essentially chose Baldwin due to their openness to my disability, the fact that they had no hesitations about admitting a four-year-old with a vision disability definitely set them apart from the crowd. So,…

Learning To Talk To Strangers: My Summer Internship With CollegeFashionista

I have always loved to write, but never about myself. When I was younger, I would always be buying journals, trying to write in them, wanting desperately to be able to keep up with writing in a diary. But unfortunately, that never really worked for me. I probably have a dozen notebooks in my desk…

There’s Something You Should Know: My Disability Story

I feel as if I wouldn’t be being completely honest with anyone if I did not tell them about my vision. I was born with Bilateral Colobomas, which is present in less than every one in ten thousand births. It was not until I was two months old that my parents noticed the strange shape…
