Hello all.


My name is Kaylie Benson. This is my very first blog post on my very first real website, so this should be interesting.

I’m 19 years old from Woodbridge, Virginia.  I attend the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia. A whopping 45 minutes away from home (on a bad traffic day). Far enough that my parents aren’t knocking on my door, but close enough that they can bring my dog for some visits.

I’ve been swimming since I was 6 years old, and now swim for UMW! It’s a lifelong sport and I’m so glad to have been involved since such a young age. Swimming has brought me my closest friends and taught me lessons that are extremely valuable to me still today. I now teach young kids how to swim for the same organization that taught me to swim, and it makes me so excited to think about the journey they have ahead of them as mine is coming full circle.


I intend to be a communications major. I like people, I like interacting with people and making people laugh. Humor is a big part of my personality and if you can make me laugh, we’ll get along great! My ultimate dream job would be to somehow work for NBC comedy. I’m not that great at writing funny things, I’m not an actor in any sense of the word, so even if I’m just the coffee maker I’ll be the happiest girl in the world!

I have a great family which includes a great dog. We’re DC sports fans (so much so my dog is named after Bryce Harper..), and big Duke Men’s Basketball people. I know how their season is going…let’s not talk about it..

I love the beach, the city, and every place in between.

I’m all around unsure what I want to do with this website, but I know I want to use it, so here’s to trying!

(These pictures make me look artsier than I really am, they were just taken with my phone.)

Happy days to all!

~ Kaylie
