About a Girl: An Interview with Caroline Sloane

Caroline is a high school freshman, has preternatural design skills, and a gorgeous easy smile.

What gets you excited about the future?

The Future. It holds so much that is not accessible just yet. I do not take for granted the advantages and opportunities I have and will be presented with throughout my lifetime. I hope to make a name for myself. I do not intend to watch my life go by. I hope to make a difference, big or small. My goal will be to impact those around me. I want to see the world, and I want the world to see me. 

Who are your heroes?

Being a 15 year old girl my inspirations change daily. But some stick with me, I have an aunt named Kristine who I admire more than anyone. Art is loved throughout my family. Kristine was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis several years ago. What is so inspirational about her is even though she can not hold a pencil or paint brush straight she continues to make art; because art is what makes her happy so she works with what she has. Watching her from a distance over the years I've learned more than I can process but I take several important lessons from her. Do what makes you happy, do not focus on the bad but emphasize the good things, and do not take anything for granted. 

How would you describe your personal style?

Less is more. A classic comfy look is what I strive for. In the spring time a pair of ripped boy friend jeans, a classic plain tee, and a pair of vans is all I need. As the weather gets chilly a pair of well fitted darker jeans an over sized comfy sweater and worn in fryes is what I tend to live in. Living in a household of girls style is something we all focus on. Style tells more about a person than one thinks. It is a simple way to express ourselves everyday.
