Kaley Hensley
Kaley Hensley

Honors Student Ambassador for Communication/Social Media

I originate from Chapmanville, West Virginia, a small town in the southern part of the state. Currently a sophomore, I plan to pursue a bachelor's degree in English and eventually become a writer. I am the single mother of a handsome pug named Toby. In my free time, I'm usually reading or buying candles; my favorite scent is any of the cookie variety. I travel quite a bit and my journeys have taken me to countries such as Austria and Italy. I found myself wanting to study at WVU because I fell in love with Woodburn Hall. I go to sit in the circle often.
