Caroline broom, UVA '20 | DEvelopment INTERN
Caroline is from Chesapeake, Virginia and grew up coming to Charlottesville to pick apples and always dreamed of going to school at UVA. She is majoring in Politics but hopes to combine her love of children and passion for education to do nonprofit work once she graduates. Growing up by the beach, she has loved living in the mountains for college and enjoys taking in their natural beauty on hikes. She loves watching movies, eating avocado toast, and making people laugh. A close friend of hers recommended she check out Vintage when she got to school and the first time she went she met one of her very best friends!

CCG, as many of her friends (and co-workers!) call her, loves spending time outside, reading, cooking, and playing with Ginger whenever she has a chance. A lover of all things Theological Horizons, CCG is also a Perkins Fellow and loves talking with students about her work as a fellow for the past year. She can usually be found working in one of her favorite Charlottesville coffee shops or reading outside at Beaver Creek Park.

She wants to someday have a business helping people live more sustainably, and possibly intertwine this with missions. She grew up on a horse farm in a small county on the Chesapeake Bay of Virginia. She enjoys hooping - an exercise involving dancing and a hula hoop, mermaiding - swimming with a mermaid shaped diving fin - and artsy activities such as making the jewelry she is wearing in this photo!
KRISTEN SHIN,UVA '20 | MARKeting & Social media INTERN
Kristen is a 4th year studying Psychology and minoring in Religious Studies. She is from Centreville, Virginia, but has come to know Charlottesville as a true home! She is a self-declared introvert and homebody, but she loves spending intentional quality time with people. Some of her greatest passions (in no particular order) include painting and hand-lettering, reading books, drinking coffee at all hours of the day, Broadway musicals, talking about the enneagram, and dogs with very human names. She also thinks it’s important for you to know that she often dreams in corgis, and she can never say no to a good floral pattern!
