Burps, Sweat Pants, And Things I Learned Living In Beijing

Well I successfully made through my two months in Beijing. Woo hoo! And now, as I sit on a 24-hour train to Hong Kong, I’m given the perfect opportunity to look back at my time spent in the huge, smoggy city of 22 million people. Coming into this internship, I really had no expectations. I […]

What To Do With 101 Passions?

As a young professional I’m often told to “find what I’m passionate about and the rest will follow.” Seems easy enough, right?

Saying Goodbye To My Friend

Last week I received a phone call that no one ever wants to get. It was news that my dear friend, Samantha, had passed away. I couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t understand it.
