About Me

My name is Eileen and I’m the blogger behind Miss Whoever You Are.
Eileen Dautruche

“You know what’s wrong with you, Miss Whoever-You-Are? You’re chicken. You’re afraid to stick out your chin and say, ‘Okay, life’s a fact.’ People DO fall in love. People do belong to each other. Because that’s the only chance anybody’s got for real happiness.” – Breakfast at Tiffany’s

This quote stuck with me for some odd reason…combine that with the immense amount of free time I had that day I decided to start this dear old blog. The internet has the amazing ability to connect people with interests such as mine and I’ve discovered that mainly through blogging. It is amazing to interact with readers and fellow blog editors everyday with each new post.
