Why are you here?

Why are you here?

By Caitlin Lytle

“Why are you here?” is the number one question I receive when people find out I am doing SULA. I am an Orange County native, and have been no stranger to Los Angeles, spending two years as a commuter and growing up and falling in love with this city. So why am I here? The In n Out, the Hollywood Bowl, my network, the industry, the ability to go home and get a hug from my mom when I need it most, my support system, the palm trees, Skylight Books in Los Feliz, Intelligentsia Coffee, Amoeba Music, Speranza pasta, LACMA, birthdays with family and friends, Dodger games, farmers markets in the winter, nights spent by the pool in the middle of fall, and the blessing that I believe is rush hour traffic because it means that we live in Los Angeles, one of the best cities in the world.
