Hi <<First Name>>,

Happy Monday :)

It's been another busy few months for me here in NYC. Winter now seems like a distant memory as Memorial Day Weekend (AKA the unofficial start of summer, especially in New York City) quickly approaches with everyone planning their escape from the city for the next 3 months. Note: Coming from LA, this is still a foreign concept to me, but I will never say "No" to Summer Fridays.

The past few months have also been an exciting time for this blog. I was featured on Refinery29 last month, and have officially published my first four interviews for "Meet A New Girl" (with the latest below!). I've loved all the feedback and new girl nominations I've been getting—keep them coming! And as always, let me know if there's anything else you'd like to see in the series.

The latest interview features Stine, a #bosslady I've had the opportunity to get to know over the past few months. She's the Managing Director of Newsroom Brand Marketing at The New York Times, a fellow Wing Woman and new girl in NYC—having moved here from San Francisco last fall (and before that London, Copenhagen, Luxembourg and more...)

I spent a fun Saturday adventuring to her favorite spots around the East Village and hearing more about her experience. Stine's story of moving to NYC brought me back to my own first days in the city—living on an air mattress (check), in the middle of summer (check), and with no furniture or air conditioning (check and check). And as miserable as that might sound, I do nothing but smile when I think back to that first week in my new home and city.

So with that, I'll leave you to it. I hope you enjoy Stine's story and take some inspiration from her life here in NYC.  I know I did!

Meet A New Girl: Stine

An interview series about real women making a life for themselves in New York City.

Describe Your First Few Weeks As A New Yorker:

"Stine, there is a man who’s jumped on top of a yellow taxi outside!”

Firstly, two weeks before moving from San Francisco I crashed on my bicycle and broke my shoulder and had surgery. Then, I had to go on a planned trip to Sweden so when I landed in NYC the day before my new job at The Times started, I was in an arm sling and had my mom in tow from Sweden since I had broken down in tears while I was there asking her to help me move since my boyfriend was still in California. So, my mom and I faced NYC head on together, even if I was in a lot of pain and it sucked going to my first day of work in a sling!

It felt like real New York. It was hot as hell in July and we didn't have an air conditioner so we had to keep our windows open to 2nd Avenue all night. One night on the 4th of July, my mom woke me up at 4am standing by the window looking out and said, "Stine, there is a man who's jumped on top of a yellow taxi outside!"

I just said, go back to sleep.
