    Cara is a current Business and Technology student at Stevens Institute of Technology right in Hoboken and has absolutely no plans of leaving the Mile Square anytime soon after graduation. You can normally spot her strutting the Hoboken streets in one of her signature crazy patterned headbands and an iced coffee in hand, regardless of what the temperature is outside. A bubbly, peppy, and excited-about-life-girl, she certainly can put the “happy” in any happy hour! When she’s not out and about, Cara can be found playing on the varsity softball team at Stevens, obsessively editing one of the hundreds of pictures she probably took that day, or making a to-do list. She loves being in the know about literally everything and loves to attend all of the most exciting events Hoboken has to offer. She likes to think her insta game is strong, mostly because she lives by the motto “pics or it didn’t happen!”
