Hey! I'm Caitlin and I'm a 21-year-old college student at Radford University! I'm a sophomore and I'm majoring in media studies, with a concentration in journalism. I'm originally from Texas, but in January 2015, my family and I moved to Seoul, South Korea where we lived for three years for my mom's job; she works for the Army Corp of Engineers. Just to specify, that's South Korea, not North Korea. I love Korean BBQ, hate K-Pop, and I only speak a little Korean. My family and I moved to Virginia in 2018. I love watching movies, writing, listening to music, and baking amazing sweets.
