My name is Caroline. I am a North Carolina native and grew up in Roanoke Rapids. I graduated from RRHS in 2001, a member of both the Spanish Honor Society and National Honor Society.
I attended UNC-Chapel Hill from 2001-2006. After several major changes, I settled on Asian Studies with a minor in Japanese language. During my time at UNC, along with 16~18 hour course loads, I volunteered and worked part-time. From 2001-2003, I was a volunteer at Commmuniversity, an at risk youth outreach, in which I assisted kindergarten and middle school aged kids with homework and literacy. From 2004-2005, due to my major, I was asked to help native Japanese and Chinese speaking women with their English language skills at M.A.N.O. (Mujeres Avanzando hacia Nuevas Oportunidades). I also volunteered for a year with UNC Children's Hospitals, serving dinner to families with children in the hospital ward, as well as reading to and interacting with the children there in the ward.
Unfortunately, the recession hit after I finished undergrad. As a result of the declining economy and scarcity of jobs, I decided to enroll in a local community college in 2008. I graduated in 2010 with an AAS in Networking Technology and an AAS in Computer Information Systems.
