Caroline is passionate about music, social justice, and all living things. Her involvement with various musical groups throughout her middle and high school years has given her a passion for people and the various ways in which they communicate whether it be through language, music, actions or some other form of expression. Her experience as a runner and field hockey player in beautiful North Carolina has given her a great appreciation for the outdoors and nature, including animals. Her goals for the year are to become proficient in Portuguese, form strong bonds with her host family and community, and broaden her perspective of what education means. She is inspired by the the outdoors, friends, family, and music.
