Photography Milan Wheaton

Who is she?

Name Vivian
Pronouns She/her
Vocation Neuroscience researcher who’s starting her PHD / digital creator & creative
Location New York, NY

Since she is newer to NYC, we had to ask: what’s your impression of the city so far?

Everyone is much nicer than expected. There hasn’t been a single person that I’ve talked to that has been pretentious or mean.
Everyone [in NYC] is just trying to find their space and express themselves.

What was the highlight of your summer?

Getting my dog in August and she is the perfect addition to my family. Her name is Jellybean :)

What was your summer low?

Trying to figure out how to balance out different aspects of my life. Do I apply to grad school? Do I leave NYC and come back? There was nothing forcing me into one direction/way of life.

What’s a business in NYC you want to shout out?

My friend [Pearl] has a dining and social club called HernameisNala. They host and cook for private parties and clients. She inspires me so much because she balances many things and has this food endeavor that involves bringing people together.

What’s a trend you want to see resurrected?

Leg warmers! I was just talking about this with my friend last night. I desperately want them to come back. Maybe it’s an ex-dancer thing, but they’re so much fun.
