Hey everyone, I'm Kaitlyn. Before I came to Clemson, I moved around a lot all throughout the East Coast; that's about as far as I've traveled though. However, I would like to visit other countries so I can travel to beaches, experience wild animal and forest reservations, and learn to appreciate other countries' cultures. Back home in Myrtle Beach I left behind my mom, my dad, and two loving dogs who cuddle with me every night. I have always had a love for animals and hope to further my career in a field where I am able to help animals live long and healthy lives. About five years ago, my best friend and her dad took me on a trip to Clemson for the rivalry football game against the University of South Carolina. Since that moment, I knew that I only wanted to go to college at Clemson. I was so headstrong in this decision, that my senior year in high school I only applied to one school: Clemson University. Luckily, I was accepted and my journey as a tiger had officially begun, and has been an unforgettable one thus far. This year, I live in The Cottages with my roommate Savanah, and our dog Brodie. One of our first days after moving in, we were walking our 4-month old boxer puppy and I met the boy next door. He immediately became a best friend to me the first night we hung out and we have been on our own adventure ever since. I'm an active person, I love going hiking, taking runs on the beach, and walking around exploring cities. Yet, at the same time I love cooking food (and eating it of course), staying in bed all day and napping, and relaxing and drawing. I bond with people through sports and music though. Dancing and rapping really gets my heart going, and anyone who shares this love with me is a keeper.
