Oh my god, what a day! I'm exhausted and my feet hurt like they've never hurt before, but right now all I can think about is how amazing it is to actually be here - experience this, now. Being in New York is.. indescribable. I don't think it has actually sunk in yet. I feel like I'm in a coma, running around town, waiting for my brain to catch up with what is happening. A weird form of apathy, like I'm under a spell, hypnotized by this magical city and the people in it. I've made so many new friends: the other finalists, of course - our wonderful Nokia and ELLE connections and amazing artists like Anna Sheffield and Bethany Mallet, Danielle Krasse from WeSC and very cool and fashionable boys and girls from all over the world. I'm forever grateful for this opportunity - now I just have to break out of my shell and go for it!
Thanks to Ricardo Hernandez of The Style Inquisitor for taking pictures of me. Can you believe I forgot my tripod?
