Fairy tales only come true if you make them happen. As someone who has cold emailed and worked plenty of sleepless nights to her dream job, found a way to continue living her passion for dance and given back by encouraging others to do the same - I feel truly blessed to be in this position today. Things to know about me that you can't find on LinkedIn or a resume:

I have an unbelievable appetite for good books (all kinds), country music, and art museums. I like to immerse myself in new cultures every chance I get and have an odd affinity for french fries dipped in ice cream. If there was a Jeopardy category for Disney movies, I would win hands down. Armed with a love of sociology and public speaking, I make it a point to hear as many stories as possible of how people ended up where they are today. Hence, a huge fan of Humans of New York and Humans of India.

I've never pursued anything that I did not have a passion for, and I don't intend to start now. Dance will always be a constant in my life, as will casual photography and writing. In pursuit of a new challenge, I recently took up teaching dance classes, as well as some basic coding (thank you, codecademy!). Always on the search for inspiration, I am in awe of pretty much every TED talk ever done.

As Oprah once said, you get in life what you have the courage to ask for. What will you question next?
