Eight years ago, September 2010:
I packed up one suitcase + I moved to NYC, I had nothing except my smile, my character & my consistent hard work.

I slay all day, even when shit got tough, I stood up with grace.

Welcome the Ten things I learned "making it in NYC"

  2. Remember people will hurt you, grace and resilience will be key
  3. Expect nothing from anyone -- no hand outs
  4. Play hard, play fair, always be honest
  5. Patience is the highest virtue: it will take a great deal of both time and $$$
  6. You will gain friends and lose some - learn from this.
  7. Try to do mostly the things that you love + that make you feel good + make time to be bad-- date all the men/women you want, stay out late, never a regret
  8. Surround yourself with the smartest people you know, drop the dead weight + watch out for social climbers
  9. Never ever change, because who you are is so so brilliant and so special basic is so so boring -- please don't compare
  10. Gaman - to endure with grace and resilience is your secret weapon
  11. BONUS: Remind yourself why you do this - for me it is to help others -- please be in the present as much as you can
