Carley Welch

I'm Carley Welch. I'm currently a rising senior at James Madison University where I'm majoring in media arts and design with a concentration in journalism, and minoring in political communications. I've had a passion for story telling since I understood what a story was. I believe personal growth and challenges are what inspires my writing and allows me to flourish my creativity. I love food, I love to travel, and most prominently, I love to learn. I'm always looking for the next adventure.
