I'm a 2011 graduate of Boston College and the Columbia Publishing Course, and currently the Manager of Campus Development for HerCampus.com. I'm obsessed with independent book stores, traveling, and wine. When I'm not spending all of my money on these things, I spend my time running, reading, watching bad TV with my roommates, and exploring Boston. You can find me on twitter at @britmlewis.

I can’t help but feel targeted and defensive – mostly because I know Bauer is probably right.
