Hi Ya'll!

Hi everyone!

Since this is my first post, I’ll give you a little information about myself! My name is Caroline Brewer and I am from High Point, North Carolina. I am a junior in the Levine Scholars Program and I am 3 semesters (and a few weeks) away from becoming a nurse!  I am a southern girl at heart and I love both my little white poodle and my dalmation mix mutt! I love the fall, not just because it’s my birthday month, but also because of football season, halloween, and the fair. People who know me know I LOVE the fair!!
Yes, I'm barefoot

Since I’m not too far from my home, I wasn’t sure how I was going to like UNC Charlotte, but it is AMAZING! I totally fell in love with the city when I came here as a freshman and my love has only grown since! I love restaurant week because I love food and you can go to some of the best restaurants in Charlotte for cheap! Also, nothing quite beats the Lazy 5 Ranch. It's not exactly in Charlotte but it's close enough and so much fun! There’s nothing like Panthers Sunday in Charlotte, regardless of how they’re playing this season…

So much has happened since my freshman year, but I’ll try to keep things brief. I have made some amazing friends and worked my tail off getting into nursing school. One of the major activities I am involved with in Charlotte is the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte. Once a month, the Levine program cooks a meal for the families staying in the house. I am responsible for coming up with the menu and many of the other Levine Scholars join me to cook for the families. I absolutely love working in the kitchen (fully stocked by Cuisinart and KitchenAid) and spending time serving the brave families. 


I want to be a nurse and like I said I am so close! I have spent my last few summer experiences working with pregnant women and midwives because that is my passion. This summer, I am planning to spend four weeks in Mongolia working with women there and I cannot wait! It’s so far away and is kinda scary but I’m still every excited for the chance to go all the way around the world!

Life is kind of crazy right now, but I wanted to take time to share my life with ya'll. I hope you have an amazing week!
