My name is Savannah Brown and I am a current graduate student at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I study American history, in particular North Carolina state history, and down to the nitty-gritty, I study North Carolina juvenile court history (the creation of the juvenile court in North Carolina and subsequent laws). I received my undergraduate degree in History and Anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. The name of the blog comes from my childhood nickname, savvy, so it felt like a fun twist on what my family and friends called me as a kid and who I am today. I started this blog as part of a school assignment, but I hope to include personal anecdotes along the way!
