Hi! My name is Karen, you can call me Karen. My dad hates nicknames and he never wanted me to have one so he gave my mom three choices: Karen, Lee or Pam. Luckily my mom is the one with the better taste. Seriously? Who wants to be named Pam? Not Pamela, just Pam. But I digress…
I am a true Miami girl, I use words like “literally,” “supposedly” and “super.” And I eat croquetas for breakfast more often than I should. I love good food, my boyfriend’s dog and my boyfriend (in that order). I love to talk but unlike Professor Jay, I don’t like the sound of my voice so I have more fun sitting back and listening. I’m a super girly girl. Most of my personal belongings are pink and/or polka dotted, and I have a pretty extensive Barbie collection. And although most people would assume I enjoy listening to Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato, my Spotify account is dedicated to classic and heavy metal rock… and Pitbull (stop rolling your eyes, you know you love him!). My favorite show ever is I Love Lucy, I can recite every line of every show but I still laugh every time i watch them. I had a goal to travel all of Europe before I turned 30. I got through all of Northern, Western and Southern, but just as I was getting started on the East, I found a full time job and I don’t have that kind of vacation time anymore. I’m bummed but I have a few years left, so I’m still hopeful!
Speaking of goals… Ever since I was a little girl all I ever wanted to be was a journalist. I would make monthly family newsletters, and pretend I was a reporter while taking into a hairbrush and using my stuffed animals as sources. When I started college all I ever dreamt of was getting through the journalism track sheet but somewhere down the line I lost my passion. By that point I had taken too many journalism classes to just toss them, so I’m keeping it as a minor (although I’d only have two classes left after this semester to finish the major… still considering it) and Political Science is my major. But wait, there’s more! I work in hospitality and that’s what I want. So I’ve decided I’m pursuing an MBA for grad school. Final answer.
If you’ve reached this point, you pretty much know all that’s worth knowing about me. Or maybe there’s more. But you’ll just have to find out yourself!
