Carmen, a Clarkston native, received her bachelor’s in English from the University of Michigan in 2013. After floating from one unfulfilling office job to the next, she decided it was time to pursue what she loved: writing. Now, she’s a master’s candidate at Wayne State University studying journalism. She joins SEEN this fall as an editorial intern, bringing diverse experience in news reporting and feature writing. For her, writing is about exploring humanity – the good, the bad, and all the nuances in between. When she isn’t storytelling, she loves photography, swimming, and playing with her four pugs.
