McCanners of New York | 14th Edition
How long have you been at McCann?
What do you enjoy most when you’re not working?
Shopping. Something is therapeutic about adding on to what you already have; or maybe I’m just a hoarder.
What advice would you tell your 17-year-old-self?
Don’t be afraid to try new things by yourself; waiting on others will hold you back from great opportunities.
What are you currently obsessed with?
Chocolate and peanut butter.
Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?
I see myself well into my fashion career as a stylist…and possibly planning a wedding.
What would be your last meal?
My last meal would be a platter of delicacies from around the world. I have a big appetite.
What is your greatest fear?
Losing my sight. The thought of not seeing anything freaks me out.
Which living person do you most admire?
My father. He’s optimistic about everything; he’s like a ball of positive energy.
Which talent would you most like to have?
I wish I were a good dancer. I used to dance really well when I was in middle school. Now I’m just awkward.
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
This is cliché but getting through college was my greatest achievement. The college experience tests you mentally, physically, and emotionally…and throughout this time you’re also figuring out who you want to become in this world.
What do you most value in your friends?
Knowing that they have my back. In other words, I value their honesty and loyalty.

Batman. I love how classy and mysterious he is.
Who are your heroes in real life?
My brothers are my heroes; they have become role models for me and I believe that good role models are heroes.

“Everything happens for a reason.” Believing that gets me through any and everything.
Where are you most likely to splurge?
The supermarket and H&M. Both are equally important.
If you could live at any point in history what point would that be - and why?
The 90’s for sure. That was the decade where fashion was so funky and hip hop was organic and genuinely good.
