What's it like being from New York City?

It's interesting in a way.  You meet people from all over the world growing up.  You get on the subway or bus just to go to high school and sometimes you never see these kids again. I recall freshman year cutting class and just hanging out at the South Street Seaport with ten other friends. I don't think I've ever hung out with the same group of people throughout my whole life and it just makes things more interesting.  

You have a need to travel and you make it happen? Explain more.

Traveling is so eye opening and very important for self growth.  I also love learning about other cultures and find it interesting that no matter where you go, someone will speak English. I recently had my first solo trip and went to Iceland. It was fucking amazing.  I never felt so free. No waiting on others to do anything or go anywhere.  Everyone should go somewhere alone, at least once.


Short & sweet, tell us the first thing that comes to your mind about your past travels? 

There's a certain romanticism, the idea of being in a place that is not your own.

What do you think you ultimately want to do career wise in your late twenties? 

I'm interested in a lot of different career paths and I think that's what makes it very hard for me to decide. I went into college wanting to be a fashion journalist and came out wanting to teach kids abroad and learn more about these random hobbies I have.

Beer or liquor? 

Beer and Whisky.







Five things that make you genuinely happy? 

Travels, the summer night breeze, love letters, dancing, my friends, late night philosophical talks.

What do you want people to learn from knowing you? 

That there is no time or age to define what you're doing.  I'm still working on it. 

Why you so cute? 

Stop it, I'm blushing.
