I’m really good at
Navigating New York. Communicating. Learning as I go. Quick responses. Quoting musicals in day-to-day life. Long conversations. Finding "The Great Gatsby" in any situation. Cooking. Hosting parties. Being in large groups. Making tuna salad.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where my friends and I will be someday. What defines a millennial? How important loyalty is. How thrilled I am to have grown up in the place I want to spend my life.
