Caleigh’s Summertime Chronicles


All About… Who? Me?!

Hello everyone! My name is Caleigh Deane, and I will be periodically updating this blog throughout the summer for my course at the University of Mary Washington (UMW) called Digital Storytelling, or DS106. Below, you will find a well-thought-out picture of me after a week of glorious yet severe sunburn-inducing tanning in Kauai from my Flickr PhotoStream, which is embedded when you click on the image.

Me :)

As for who I am, that is kind of a long story; some might say it takes 21 years to get through it! As for the boring details, I was born and currently live in Richmond, Virginia, when I am not at our fabulous school, of course! Before that, though, I attended a private college-preparatory school called Collegiate from kindergarten through my senior year of high school. It was there I realized that I wanted to be a teacher so I could help struggling students expand on their potential through hard work like I did. As you may have guessed, given the pre-prescribed length of my life, I am a 21-year-old woman. I have been studying at UMW since the fall of 2020 (at which time I met my best friend and current boyfriend of three years), so I am a rising senior currently. I am an Elementary Education major with a minor in Spanish (¡Hola!). As for who I am beyond statistics, I love to read, work with children, listen to country music, be in nature, work out, and play volleyball. Volleyball is my favorite sport, and because I’m not very good at it, I taught for four years in high school. I also love spending time with my family, including my younger sister (who, you guessed it, can be rather irritating at times!) and my parents. As for my chosen family, I love my best friend, who decided to betray me by moving to Florida (I have decided to forgive him because we go to Disney together every summer now). 

If you look to your right, you will see me and my lovely family who all are photogenic, whereas I in the back was not at all prepared for this barrage of iPhone flipped-camera selfies. However, I still love them, but I loved this 2-week trip to Hawaii slightly more. Don’t tell them that, though! Thanks for reading about me, and my rather boring, but love-filled life. I hope you stick around and see where this goes for the next five weeks!

Below you will find a little ‘About Me” SoundCloud Audio. Enjoy!
