#BrooklynBrunch: MLK Edition

16 Jan

Since I first made the move to Brooklyn (BK), I promised myself that I’d make my personal development goals just as important as my professional development goals. As a young pro, it’s so easy to allow your career to take over your life. Luckily, NYC is such an amazing place with a lot to do, especially in BK.

As I mentioned in the Pursuing Your Dreams post, I fell in love with BK at a very young age. I made the move from

Via Time Inc

Manhattan to BK a few months ago and decided that I’d like to become a Brooklyn resource — someone who knows everything there is to know about the borough — in a few years. One of the many things I’m doing to make this happen is hosting a weekly #BrooklynBrunch with a few of my closest friends. Every week, we go to a different Brooklyn-based restaurant and have controversial yet meaningful conversations.

In honor of the late Martin Luther King, Jr., we’ve decided to host a brunch today and will be discussing the state of black Americans.

    What a great tradition to start!! It’s nice to hear about a group of young people getting together to have some real talk and meaningful conversation. We need these kind of brunches everywhere. I think you’re on to something that has the potential to go big my friend!
