Born and raised in northeast Queens. New York is like a big sister to me; I admire her, but sometimes I get sick of her and wish she'd just shut up. I love discovering new places near and far. I'm a compulsive listmaker who's actually pretty great at living in the now. No one can get enough of my dance moves. Take me to a block party and I will make friends.

Will they notice if I check my phone?
What's something I have not yet done — and can I do it today?
