Miss A Columnist

Baylee Chesnutt is the Research Triangle Editor for Miss A. She was born and raised in the “Furniture Capital of the World,” (better known as High Point, North Carolina) and now calls Chapel Hill home. She is a freshman double majoring in Journalism and Business at UNC. She absolutely loves Chapel Hill and the Raleigh area, and has had the best time exploring all the area has to offer.

She loves that one minute she can be in this little college town checking out a cupcake shop or an old book store, and another she can be in the midst of some of the best research developments in the country (not to mention some great shopping and dining!). Her dream is to one day be able to make my own impact on the fashion industry. She is obsessed with discovering new trends and giving them her own spin. She would definitely say that she is a big city girl. She hopes to live in NYC at some point, but she also loves the beach lifestyle and would like to ultimately settle down somewhere like Charleston.

UNC Dance Marathon To Benefit North Carolina Children’s Hospital

visit-slider-process-sc645x400-t1394571733Chances are, if you’ve been on the campus of UNC in the past few months, you’ve heard someone talking about the Dance Marathon and shouting about FTK (For the Kids- the motto of the marathon). Well, the long anticipated event is finally here! This 24-hour marathon benefits the patients and families of the NC Children’s Hospital. It does so through various grants and programs, such as Parent’s Night Out

The money raised supports families,  providing them with gas gift cards and food, and even paying their bills in emergency situations. This past year, the Marathon raised over $483,000, a number they hope to beat this year. The event will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, March 21, and last until 7:30 p.m. the next day.

Dancers are required to stand on their feet for 24 hours, during which they will participate in fun activities such as watching movies, walking around Kenan Football Stadium, and participating in dance performances. They will also get the chance to hear families and children from the hospital speak about the impact the UNC-DM has made on their life.
