Style Advisor: Karen Hill

avatar School: Fordham University Hi! My name is Karen Hill and I attend Fordham University, class of 2014. I am double majoring in French and Sociology, two of my many passions. Originally from New York, I moved to Washington, DC when I was only 7 years old. Now here I am, back where I belong in a city with endless opportunities. Long walks on the beach are not my thing, but rather I love window shopping on 5th Ave, treating myself to the Opera, and allowing myself to get lost on the subway so I can explore the city. It is always the best feeling to come back to my dorm after an adventured filled day. The city is a cornucopia filled with diverse fun, but my room is a unique reflection of “me” and I love that me time.
