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
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.
