Hey everyone! My name’s Kaia and I am a sophomore here at Loyola. I’m from a small town about fifteen minutes out of Cleveland, Ohio. By small, I mean graduated from high school with 60 kids small. I would see the same people every day, from kindergarten all the way to twelfth grade. You could say it was quite the transition when I came to Loyola and saw hundreds of new faces every day!
I’m planning to get my bachelor’s degree in Social Work with a minor in Psychology. I hope to go on to law school and become some kind of child advocacy attorney or divorce attorney.
I am absolutely obsessed with the city of Chicago. How awesome to spend your college years in one of the greatest cities in America? You are never at a loss for things to do! I’m not gonna lie… I can definitely do some damage on Michigan Avenue. It’s fantastic for my wardrobe, but not so much for my wallet…
Other than shopping, I love sports, specifically Cleveland sports. The Cavs are my absolute favorite, but unfortunately the NBA lockout is keeping them from me right now, and to say I’m a little sad is an understatement. I’m slowly getting converted into a Chicago sports fan, though.
I also am a huge foodie; I’d go out to eat every day if I could. Two of my Chicago faves would have to be Giordano’s pizza and a small restaurant a block from my residence hall, Thai Grill. Delicious!
I love to volunteer, as well. I currently volunteer with developmentally disabled adults as well as at risk students in the inner city. It’s incredibly rewarding and a great experience!
So that’s a little about me… I’m loving Loyola and the city of Chicago, and it can only get better!Tags: Chicago, Cleveland, Shopping, Volunteer
