Now is the Time. Memphis is the Place.

Choose901 Interns: Carrie Pinkley

Hi, I’m Carrie! I am a communications student at the University of Memphis. Photography is my favorite outlet, next to writing. Raised in Cordova, I moved out to the 38104 to branch out on my own in college. My cat, Asher, is in charge of all mischief in my life. I am passionate about loving on others and trying to make this world a kinder place. Judge less and love more. Catch me sipping on iced coffee and going to concerts on the regular!

Everyone who grows up in Memphis wants to get out of here, right? Well, I thought I did. I wanted to pack my bags and go to a bigger city for my college years. I was convinced that Memphis has nothing to do and nothing to offer. But, I became a tourist in my own city and fell in love with my surroundings. I discovered local shops, delicious food and hospitality like only Memphis can offer. I learned to ‘bloom where I am planted’. Now, I’m so happy I stayed! I hope to share my perspective of community in Memphis with readers and continue to learn more about the city that molded me. I choose 901 for the grit, grind, and potential that this city has to offer!
