Caroline Blackburn

Caroline was drawn to Global Citizen Year's program because it appealed to her unending thirst for adventure and travel. After attending a four-year magnet arts high school with a concentration in theater, Caroline has a long history with several art forms and enjoys comedic journaling and music, as well as learning new languages. She is passionate about women's rights, Latin American studies, cultural economics, and has a tremendous (as well as somewhat erratic) love for adventure and discovery. Her goals this year during her cultural immersion are to learn Brazilian Portuguese on a proficient level and be able to gain a totally different perspective of the world before returning to the United States.
