"She was one of the rare ones, so effortlessly herself, and the world loved her for it. -Atticus"
My name is Caitlin Carsley; however, my close friends and family simply call me Cait. As a child, I had
the pleasure of growing up on the beautiful St. Croix Falls River in the city of Taylors Falls, Minnesota. Now, I mean it in a
literal sense when I say I grew up ON the River. My childhood memories are filled with an endless amount of days spent
on the glistening water with my entire family. However, when I began grade school, my parents decided to make the
move across the river and build a house in the country side of St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin. Although I just recently moved
to Shafer, Minnesota, St. Croix Falls is where I have made the majority of my memories growing up. Looking back on the past, I
find it crazy seeing how I have changed and become the person I am at this very moment. I have developed a love
for photography, spending time in nature
(Interstate Park), and
have made irreplaceable friendships. I have learned to cherish a good book and appreciate down time. I have realized that exercise and eating
healthy is important to me, but I still can eat a giant cheeseburger and not feel bad about it! I have discovered an itching
desire to explore the world and I yearn for the warmth of the Sun's golden rays everyday.
I have had mind boggling revelations on how I view life, deciding that every moment matters and I refuse to let them go by
without me experiencing great things. However, I also acknowledge all the miserable experiences I have had in my life at this point.
They too, have shaped the person I am today. They have taught me to be strong, confident, brave, and independent. It has shown me
that I am a unique person and I have so much to offer the world, as it does to me.
