Caroline also writes for and runs Cherry Magazine, a digital LGBTQIA+ mag on fashion, beauty, and wellness. She cut her teeth at Syracuse University — majoring in magazine journalism at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, and working as a columnist and editor at The Daily Orange. When Caroline isn't writing, you can probs find her gushing over (historically questionable) period dramas, attending concerts, or eating her way through any city she travels to.
