Hello, and welcome to Switching Coasts! My name is Paula Ilonze, and I started this blog because I am an East Coaster, born and raised in North Carolina, and decided on a whim to switch coasts and move to Los Angeles, California. I am beyond excited to obtain my master’s in journalism from the University of Southern California, one of the most renowned journalism programs in the world. Go Trojans!
This blog will chronicle my experiences as a new transplant here. It will serve as an “anything goes” blog, so I plan to take you on my journey of lifestyle, fitness, food, and fashion in LA. Feel free to always comment anything you would like me to talk about or share of my experiences. This is for you and me!
