Hey there! Thanks for visiting my blog, stumbling upon it or whatever brought you here. I’m Carly, a student at the University of Iowa. I am currently studying Journalism with a minor in Spanish and a certificate in Entrepreneurship. I’m passionate about friends, family, health, travel, and making the world the best possible place it can be.

In my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors, photography, and eating good food. Prominent Youth was established because I wanted a place to share my writing and use my voice as a young person to make an impact. This space is a collection of my passions, specifically regarding food and wellness. I believe in the importance of nourishing our bodies when we’re young.

I like to think that I’m funny, so hopefully my posts make you laugh. This is just a place for me to share my thoughts and recipes with the world. I hope you enjoy what I have to say!

  1. Hey Carly, my Name is Tommy! I honestly don’t remember how I heard about your blog, besides the fact that my dad said someone he knew, happened to know someone else (who heard from a guy who… well I’m sure you got the joke) that wrote a blog about going on a trip by herself. I wanted to say I really enjoyed this because it related to me super strongly. I just got back from a two month long stint of an internship in London, and found myself having a very tough time at first but then adapting and having an amazing experience. I never have been a huge Blog guy, but recently I have been thinking about some sort of outlet that I can use for myself to calm down and just put some honest effort into and feel therapeutic at the same time. In my case it was stand up comedy (don’t ask) and I just wanted to let you know that this has inspired me even more. So I guess in the end I just want to say thanks!! (For the blog and for reading through this rambling comment)
