    if you're interested in becoming a "college girl" you can send your personal information to me (mollie) at information should include a personal christian testimony, your educational background, and a little bit about yourself. it also helps if you know one of the other "college girls" already for reference information. :)

    I like this list, but I think a lot of that comes from working a job where one is given the opportunity to develop those skills. I agree that having the education helps!
