Besides the fact that my family lives in NYC, I would have to say the endless options of cuisine, social activity and culture is what I love most about the city I live in. You have the world at your fingertips in New York and that isn’t something any New Yorker or NYC visitor should take for granted.
Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?
My favorite breakfast meal would have to be the avocado toast topped with a poached egg from The Mark hotel’s restaurant. My days are very long and I need a big breakfast to start my day.
What are you doing at:
6:00 AM – getting ready for work
10:00 AM – in the office
12:00 PM – Favorite Power Lunch spot/meal?
The lentil salad and eggplant parmesan from Sant Ambroeus SoHo. The food and ambiance at Sant Ambroeus is unrivaled by any other place in NY.
7:00 PM – leaving work to head to a workout. I typically do a group class such as Soul Cycle, Tracy Anderson or play tennis with my mom.
11:00 PM – hopefully sleeping!
What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?
Matcha! It gives you energy without the jitters and is filled with antioxidants!
Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?
I use the Shazam app the most because my friends play the best music that I love to listen to later! My favorite Instagram account is Futurism because it keeps me up to date with all the new, exciting and crazy innovations becoming more readily available. This is particularly important to me because of the master’s program I am in that focuses on business, entrepreneurship, technology and design. The aim of the program is to use these different fields cohesively to become or create the next disrupter.
What should everyone try at least once?
I believe everyone should move to a different city even if only for a short time. I was lucky enough to be able to attend the University of Southern California, which is 2500 miles away from NY. The distance made me very hesitant and nervous but living in a new city made me a more independent and well-rounded person. I made new friends, gained experiences I wouldn’t trade for anything and most importantly learned a lot about myself by leaving my comfort zone.
Where do you enjoy getting lost?
There is nothing like getting lost in a good book. One of my all-time favorite books that I could not put down is called The Kid Stays in the Picture by Robert Evans. It is an autobiography that follows his movie producing career. I highly suggest not skipping the book to watch the movie because the movie pales in comparison to this personally written and unbelievably told story that makes your draw drop as you turn each page.
