Two days ago I found out I could be star struck by a sidewalk. Today I found out I could be star struck by the outside of a building. This wasn’t just any building though; it was the façade of the orphanage from the 1999 version of Annie, a movie I grew up with, and one… Continue reading LA Day 3: A Look into a Warner Bros.

LA Day 1: Networking and Fun

I could not have asked for a better first day networking in Los Angeles. Today we visited three companies: Edelman, Paramount Pictures and Magical Elves, had lunch at an influencer-approved spot and found time for some sightseeing.

Hello Los Angeles!

I am finally in California! After telling my dad since freshman year of college that I am considering moving to Los Angeles one day, I have made it.

News broke recently that American citizens along with people from more than 60 countries will soon need a visa to enter Europe’s Schengen Zone, an area compromised of 26 countries. This, however, is a bit misleading.

Steamboat, Colorado: Good Eats

Well Steamboat, you have been good to me. Three days of nearly perfect weather, great snow coverage and beautiful times have come and gone, but the memories live on (thanks to my new Steamboat apparel…kidding).

Steamboat, Colorado Day 2: Hot Springs

One thing that makes Steamboat Springs so special is its name. Legend has it that French trappers were in the woods and heard a gurgling sound that sounded like a steamboat. It turned out to be natural springs, and hence, the two words were combined to create Steamboat Springs. I got to experience the hot… Continue reading Steamboat, Colorado Day 2: Hot Springs
