To answer the question Who am I seems simple. I am ____ or in this case, I am Caitlin. But here’s the challenge: What if many people share your name so it is no longer unique to you. How do you answer the Who am I question?
Well, I am a senior at Hofstra University, studying Creative Writing and German. (So I am fully prepared to live in a cardboard box come May 23 2011). Ah but there at least 7 other cwalsh ‘s at Hofstra as my pride email is cwalsh8. So is this detail unique enough? I don’t think so.
I am a 22 year old female who straddles the worlds of Boston and Hofstra as well as the Chalrestown that my father grew up in, and the Charlestown I’m growing up in. I am built out of contradictions. I have one foot planted firmly in my Catholic faith, and another in a healthy dose of skepticism. I have a passion for many things, from the most common and predictable like Writing to the most bizarre like Star Trek.
