Hello readers! My name is Carly Gerber and I’m the newest member of Scholarships.com's virtual intern team!
I was born and raised in Highland Park, Ill., which is a suburb 30 minutes north of Chicago. I knew I wanted to find my future employment in Chicago and that is why I picked the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign for my undergrad education; I am, however, in the middle of transferring universities so I’ll keep you all posted on where this adventure takes me and why I picked my new school!
I am currently studying elementary education at U of I but my new goal is to pursue journalism because I love learning and sharing new information. In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family and friends, watching anything on HBO or Showtime and blogging about fashion. I joined the Scholarships.com virtual intern team so that I could help make life less stressful for college students because, let’s be honest, college is a stressful time! My goal as a virtual intern is to help someone in some way and to be honest – be sure to let me know how I’m doing in the comments section!
