“A native of the Washington D.C. area, I began learning French at age five. I studied French and Journalism at Emory University in Atlanta, GA, and I am currently working on my Masters degree in Global Communications at The American University of Paris. I also write for my blog Ma Vie en Franglais.”
As much as the French and the Americans may love to insult each other (we’re fat, they hate to work, etc.) I believe that deep down, we each secretly harbor a deep appreciation for one another’s culture.
Growing up in a suburb of Washington D.C., in a family that loved to travel and a community where international affairs and politics were regularly discussed, also helped feed Carolyn’s interests in living abroad.
