As someone who recently graduated college, I am constantly reminded of  and thinking of things I wish I knew going into senior year. A fellow member of the HerCampus Blogger network asked me to do a guest post on her blog and so I did, and now it’s up on The Darling Prepster! Check it out and let me know what you think. In the…

Corporate/life lessons in fable form

This week I attended the 1st Annual NYU/Dartmouth joint career event. I emailed last minute and asked if I could go despite it being sold out because the title, “Adaptive Careers: How to Succeed in a Rapidly Evolving World” caught my eye. I thought it would be relevant to not only myself but also to those of you reading my blog! (You know I’m always looking…

Feel Alive

You may or may not have noticed that I’ve been posting a lot about commencement speeches on Twitter or Facebook. It’s because I’m curious as to what other schools are hearing and if there’s a common thread in all that’s been said. You already know what was said at my commencement but today I was able to catch a bit of Harvard’s speech, thanks to…

On my Mind: my 20’s

It seems that I’m not the only one going through a period of transition. I’m only 21 and just beginning my 20’s, but I keep meeting people who are going through the same things, even years ahead of me, so I thought this passage (below the 2 images) was worthy of sharing. Worth the lengthy read:

I am brave enough

As part of her Brave Enough Tour, Sara Bareilles asked fans and instagrammers alike to fill out a postcard. I haven’t been paying much attention to her music lately (Remember  Love song and Gravity?) but that didn’t matter. I saw this on my newsfeed and it caught my eye. This is what I filled out: As graduation is here and I enter the real world, I…

Front Row at MOCA NYC

Just a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of Canal Street in Chinatown you’ll find a quieter street with a hidden gem: MOCA NYC. Back in January, I visited MOCA for the first time to attend a panel, “Female, Fashionable, New York“, to hear perspectives of three Asian American women in the Fashion industry. This is when I found out that MOCA would have…

On my mind: 2 H’s

Currently on my mind:  Heart and Humanism. Thinking about how this plays in the work I do, the person I am, the life i want to lead.  I realize it’s been quite some time since I’ve blogged (I’ll explain later) and it’s mainly because the two H’s: heart and humanism,  have taken over the majority of my thought processes. Still figuring things out. Happy Monday!…

Talking with Tao Okamoto, model

I had the special opportunity to interview Tao Okamoto the other day for a freelance assignment. At first, when the person called me to do this the name didn’t register, but when I started to prepare for the interview I realized “DUH, TAO OKAMOTO!” She’s the established Japanese model who you’ve probably seen gracing countless runways, covers of Vogue, editorials and ad campaigns. Many of…

30 day challenge

In about a month from today, I will be graduating from college, ending a four-year long journey. I’ve known that this was coming but as it comes closer and closer I find myself feeling a storm of excitement, anxiety and expectation. Whenever I feel like this I tend to start reading articles or turn to TED talks for some perspective. (does anyone else do this?…
