Hello from Whitney!

What’s up fellow human beings? It’s your girl Whitney here. Welcome to the first ever blog post for the Lilo & Meg website! I am so excited to be here and I hope you find something in this blog to connect to. So, without further ado, let’s get right down to it. 

My name is Whitney, but no one ever seems to call me that. Call me Lilo, Whit, Whittles, or —as my dad calls me— “Dub”. Basically, call me whatever your heart desires. I am a 20-year-old college student at the University of Oregon where I just completed my sophomore year. I am double majoring in political science and Journalism and minoring in legal studies. What do I plan on doing with these majors, you ask? I have no clue. It seems like what I want to do with my life changes as often as I changed my hair color in high school. I started out wanting to go to law school. Then I took one journalism class and my entire viewpoint changed. I started to think that maybe I wasn’t the type of person who wanted to do the same thing every day. I want to help people, I want to tell people’s stories, and journalism seemed like the best way to do that. But like I said. Who knows what I want to do with my life.  I still have two years left to decide, plenty of time…Right?

But for now, I am putting off trying to decide what to do with my life by working on a documentary about summer and my life in general. I want this documentary to tackle everything; Family, friends, love, loss and happiness. I hope I’ll be able to achieve it. I’ll keep you guys updated on all the success and failures. 

Be kind to each other, 

Whitney
