Hi, I'm Kate! (she/her)

First and foremost, Julia Louis-Dreyfus is my most influential role model. If you don't have the time or will to read past this point, that's the main takeaway. 

I was born and raised on the Outer Banks. It's not like the show at all. I then moved to Charleston—the actual location where Outer Banks was filmed. 

 

In a former life,  I was a competitive junior tennis player. I even broke a few rackets—a regular 12-year-old John McEnroe. 

My favorite sandwich is a tomato sandwich on white bread. My favorite food overall is a cheese quesadilla. One day, I plan to open a food truck and call it Katesadillas. 

My first noteworthy piece of writing is a short story about me and my best friend at the time, Sarah. In the story, Sarah gets attacked by a wolf on Christmas Eve. I save her life, and because of this, we get to have a sleepover.  It won a prize for honorable mention at my elementary school.
