Hi! My name is Karina.

I am a recent graduate from the University of Mary Washington where I majored in English with a concentration on creative writing. My dream is to become an editor of a publication. I have always loved magazines and newspapers and have wanted to become part of the process of creating one. I’ve worked at my high school’s literary magazine as an editor. I’ve copy edited for Southern Virginia University’s newspaper, the Rappahannock Review literary journal, and I’ve interned with UMW’s alumni magazine as a copy editor.

I’m still on the hunt for a job as an editor so in the mean time I’m working retail. It’s really difficult finding a job because people want experience, which I have some, yet it doesn’t seem to be enough. Although I’m still young I feel like my life is at a standstill because I haven’t been able to get it started.
