Caroline has no idea what she wants to be when she grows up, but thinks the following sound super cool: professional trivial pursuit player, This American Life reporter, writer, gypsy, sex educator, political activist, professional feminist, curator of cool, tea connoisseur, Stephen Fry. Until she finds a way to unite them all, wearing the label storyteller will have to do. Caroline will graduate from Westminster College in May after studying English and political science.
