Originally from Berwyn, Illinois, Carrie is a third-year student at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) studying English and Professional Writing. As a former American Lit. major, journalism is a new challenge for her. Eager to tell under-covered stories, she has special interests in indigenous peoples’ stories and environmental issues. She came to Morocco to practice her French and cultivate her interest in journalism, and she has not been disappointed in what Morocco has to offer.
