Hi! I’m Mariya Whitesides, a freshman at Longwood University and I intend to major in Social Work. I created this blog in my English 150 class to help me visualize my work in a more unique form than just on paper. I’m from New Kent, Virginia, a small country town between Richmond and Williamsburg. I hope to pursue my major because I love helping others and giving support to those in need. I’m happy whether I’m surrounded by a group of friends or just hanging out with one or two of them. My favorite part about living is being outdoors. Fishing, mudding, 4-wheeling, driving down back roads, being on the river, and sitting around a bonfire are just a few of my favorite things to do in my free time.
