My LA Experience

There are so many fun and amazing things to do in LA! I would 100% recommend going to Abbot Kinney Blvd in Venice and just walk up and down the streets. They have an amazing vegan restaurant called Fala Bar, which has the best kale burger of all time! If you have a chance I […]

Here and Now

Moving to Los Angeles—even for just one semester—was a big deal for me. Back in high school, I had wanted to go to college in LA before ultimately deciding to go to Syracuse; I even flew all the way out to California with my dad during my junior year of high school just so that […]

I’m Telling You to Take a Hike

The world can be split into two camps when it comes to nature: those who see hiking as a glorified walk and those like me who find it to be a rewarding pastime. I’ve found that hiking in between tiring work days, classes, and meetings nourishes my mind, body and soul in ways a yoga […]

Being Your Own GPS

One of my favorite things to do growing up in NYC was exploring all the nooks and crannies of my own and surrounding neighborhoods. It was fun to find those hidden bookstores and hole-in-the-wall restaurants. In a city as large as LA it can be overwhelming to even pick a neighborhood to explore because of the sheer magnitude […]

My SULA Experience

Just over a month into my SULA semester, I can already tell I’ve made the right decision. I was between going here and Florence for the semester. And while I would’ve loved to go to Florence for 4 months, I would’ve been stupid to pass up on this opportunity in terms of my future career […]

Los Angeles: The Land of Opportunity

The weather is not the only appealing aspect to Los Angeles. It may seem that a large portion of Southern California is home to east coast dropouts, those who could not handle the brisk New York winters. However, even though I have only been here for a month, I have noticed a cultural inclusion; an […]

Living the LA Dream

I had the chance to visit LA once before when I was young. It only took once for me to know this is where I wanted my career to begin. I took the dive and did two internships while out here, and realized I made the right choice. Working two internships at different companies has […]
