Who are some of the women that have influenced you?
My mom heavily influences me, particularly with her selflessness. It’s mind blowing, honestly. I’ve also been very fortunate to find friends that are extremely inspirational and who influence me in a lot of different ways. I was much more “one of the boys” until my mid-20s and I’m so grateful for so many amazing women in my life now. Erika Ramirez feeds my inner introvert and reminds me that when it comes to work to keep a little for myself. Adriane Jefferson not only influences my work through her work, but the genuine personal investment she takes in people she works with and surrounds herself with is impressive and valued. Amrit Sidhu has taught me to remember the work I’ve put in to get to where I am, to take advantage of that work, and to always put your friends on whenever you can. Krista Chiu influences me to attempt to lean into my femininity while also attempting to destroy whatever goals or intentions I set for myself. I am insanely fortunate to have them and other really incredible women around me all the time.
