Out of the 22 years of my life, 2017 has been the craziest. It’s been filled with some of my biggest life changes so far. I just got my wisdom teeth removed so sadly I’m in bed recovering instead of out celebrating the new year in NYC but I must say, it’s been nice to just relax and take some time to reflect. Here are my 2017 highlights:
I started off the new year in Hong Kong, during my senior year winter break Asia trip!
We traveled to Hong Kong, Malaysia, Taiwan and Shanghai.
Finally reunited with my favorite burger place, Blue Frog in Shanghai.
Celebrated four years with Devan.
Helped organize the NYU Entrepreneurs Festival, a two day event with over a thousand attendees.
Spent spring break in Mexico. For our first few days, we stayed at this amazing Airbnb in Tulum that had a skylight right above the bed.
Bittersweet because it was our last spring break ever! Had the best time in Cancun.
Took the bus to Boston for a weekend in April to make scones and eat delicious food.
Had dinner at the Met Museum at the NYU Stern Haskins event, which has always been a dream of mine. (It was seriously the best food of my life.)
Ended my senior year as co-president of NYU Stern EEG, a club I’ve been involved in since I was a freshman. We’ve brought in some amazing speakers including Loni Edwards + Chloe the Mini Frenchie, the founder of Boba Guys, the founder of Function of Beauty and many more!
Went on the Glossier Rep Trip, which was amazing.
Attended an event with Onomie x MossPark and learned some photography tips.
Moved into my first apartment.
Visited the extraordinarily beautiful Banff National Park in Canada with my family.
Started my first full time job at Clinique on the e-commerce team.
Chopped my hair off.
Experienced a dress rehearsal at the Met Opera.
Attended the Fall Harvest with Seed Phytonutrients.
Launched Mount Lai in November and it has been a whirlwind ever since.
Had the pleasure of eating breakfast with Lxmi at the Soho House.
Had a blast at the Estee Lauder Companies annual holiday party at the Metropolitan Club. Absolutely beautiful.
Attended the Stern alumni holiday party at the Museum of Natural History. It felt like A Night At The Museum and it was super cool to be at the museum after hours.
I stepped out of my comfort zone and filmed a GRWM with Hourglass Cosmetics.
Finally, ended the year in Miami. One of my favorite trips to date. Looking forward to 2018!
