New York City, the city that never sleeps. The city that people travel the world to see. The city that people seek in pursuit of happiness, or in my case delicious macaroons.
When I was growing up, I always dreamed of seeing New York’s bright lights and tall buildings. I would watch movies set in NYC and pretend I was the main character strolling through Central Park. Fast forward to age 22, and I’m about to be a local!
Yep, you read right. Small town, southern belle is heading to the Big Apple. I’m trading in cowboy boots for stiletto heels, light cardigan sweaters for winter coats, and my license for a metro pass.
Out with the old and in with the new. It’s time to saddle up and venture out to the city I always knew I’d make my home.
I’m so excited for this next chapter in my life after graduation in three weeks. I received the wonderful opportunity to earn a media planning internship at a superb advertising agency filled with driven, hard-working people. Words can’t explain the excitement I feel knowing that I will be able to work alongside of people with a common goal.
Ready or not, New York City here I come. Please, don’t spit me out too soon!
