Elizabeth H.


London Internship Program, England


My name is Elizabeth (and, yes, you can call me Liz, Lizzie (or Lizzy if you prefer), Beth, etc. I have no preference). I am currently a junior at Guilford College in Greensboro, North Carolina. I’m an English major with minors in Communications, WGSS (Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies), and Psychology (probably…don’t hold me to any of this except the major and the Communications minor). I love writing, reading, editing, the Oxford comma, tea, Sherlock Holmes, and conversations. I’m super excited to be going to London for the semester to explore and learn. Also to see if my love of flying can withstand the flight.

So I Might Need to Start Packing

Elizabeth H. August 31, 2015

Friday was my last day at work. Over the summer, I’ve spent forty hours a week with toddlers (and sometimes babies). Friday I remembered how it feels to say goodbye to someone that you won’t see in a while. More specifically, one little girl who started… More
