My name is Caraline, I am 27 years old, I live in Durham, NC, and I have the amazing privilege of growing young minds through my work as a preschool teacher. After being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia at age nineteen, I quickly became an advocate for this chronic pain condition and have had the opportunity to work with the Fibromyalgia Care Society of America as a Fibro Youth Advocate for many years. I have seen the incredible impact kindness can have on people in all aspects of life and I have the ability to teach the importance of kindness not only to the little ones in my classroom, but to everyone who comes into my life.
