Well hey there, internets. You might recognize me from a few guest posts, but from now on I’ll be blogging regularly for Voices from Reed. So, I figured an introduction might be appropriate. See below Fig. 1, me at a Reed College holiday party:
My given name is Katherine Cassidy Hilts, but don’t call me anything other than Kate (especially Katie– there’s already a Katie who works in the Admission office). I hail from Boston most recently, but was born in Maryland, and lived for a year and a half in Gaborone, Botswana (due south of Zambia, if you don’t know your African geography).
Extracurricularly, I dabble in theater. Curricularly, I’m an Environmental Studies major with a focus in Political Science, which means I take/have taken/will take classes in eight or nine different departments– Chemistry, Biology, Economics, Political Science, Humanities, German literature, Mathematics, French.
Outside of Reed, a few of my favorite things include reading, crafting, vegan food, feminism, flora, thrifting, and cats. I freaking love Portland, and would love even more to tell you all about it (and Reed too, duh).
