Karen G.

I’m a quirky gal who loves to curl up with a good book and probably drinks way too much coffee. As a dual credit student, I am taking college courses during high school. With amazing advisors and helpful friends, moving from high school to college has been a lot smoother than I thought it would be. Soon I’ll be heading to university and getting a degree in Math (and yes, I do actually love math). I have a passion for writing short stories, poetry, and, as it turns out, articles for CollegeXpress.
