Editor’s Favorite Places in New York City

Editor’s Note: When I first joined Young Hot & Modern Magazine in 2013, I was a junior at Rutgers University and an intern. Now, I’m the Senior Contributing Editor and starting my post-grad career at Men’s Fitness/Muscle & Fitness/Flex/Muscle & Fitness Hers. It’s amazing how much YHM helped me become a better writer, editor, and feel more comfortable in my skin. I’ll always be grateful for that. YHM has grown so much throughout these past couple of years and has truly made an impact on myself, and the community. The magazine strives to encourage and celebrate women of all backgrounds. You can be an artist, a designer, a musician, or a cook but we all have something in common: we’re following our dreams while trying to be as authentic as possible.

She’s not only my “boss” but a close friend whom I trust. Young Hot & Modern Magazine could not be in better hands. Congratulations …
