Cait Bagby completed her BA in International Relations from the American University of Rome in 2009 where she also sat on several boards and committees including the President of the International Relations Club, Student Board of Appeals, Secretary of the Student Government, assistant Lecturer in Public Speaking and Negotiations, and Lead Delegate for the Model Harvard United Nations. During her time at AUR, Cait additionally worked as a Department Assistant, Student Researcher for several published books, lectures, and articles, as well as an Assistant Editor for the academic journal: International Political Anthropology.
Upon completion of her studies Cait went on to become an Editor and then Editor-in-Chief of Politikon, an internationally circulated social sciences journal under IAPSS. Simultaneously, while working as an Editor for IAPSS she was a research intern at the University of Boston Center for Gender, Security, and Human Rights. In 2015 Cait made the leap to blogging full time until 2019, transitioning World Threads Traveler from high fashion to sustainable fashion by pairing her academic training in human rights with her love and curiosity of fashion.
After graduating she took a year off to work at Baker Abraham Law Firm in Boston, MA eventually pursuing an MA in War at King’s College London graduating in 2011 with an academic emphasis on genocide studies, human rights, and terrorism. While in London, Cait interned working as a risk analyst focusing on the MENA region in regards to anti-piracy and terrorism prevention.
Since that time World Threads Traveler gained international readership and was recognized as one of the Top Green Blogs in 2017. WTT focused on sustainable fashion, green beauty, sustainable travel, and conscious lifestyle with a large portion of the blog dedicated to eco-education where readers could find articles regarding the fashion industry and covering such topics as Child Labor in the Textile Industry, Chemicals in Clothing, and Denim Production among others.
In addition to writing for sustainable platforms, Cait runs Long Hill Farm – a 17 acre farm located in Massachusetts – which focuses on regenerative farming and the cultivation of historical variety vegetables and fruits.
Cait strongly believes: “you don’t have to give up style to dress sustainably, dogs make everything better, travel is the best therapy, global living wage is achievable, flower gardens are essential, and without a healthy planet none of these things would be possible.”
