On making New York City your personality
NYU students love making New York City their personality while only going out in Manhattan (honorable mention: Williamsburg). But maybe it’s for the best — none of the boroughs want us here anyway.

On Tisch film bros
People assume that just because I’m in Film & TV, I must be insufferable and terrible to date. I can assure you — I am insufferable and terrible to date but it has NOTHING to do with me being in Tisch.

On being an NYU stereotype
It’s all fun and games making fun of NYU student stereotypes, until you find yourself using words like “dichotomy” on the subway and listening to Bjork with film bros in a sixth-floor East Village walkup. NYU culture is inescapable. Sometimes, you just have to surrender.

On a five borough city
Just because you go to NYU doesn’t mean that you have to stay exclusively in Manhattan for all four years! Can confirm: Going to Brooklyn will not kill you.
