Miriam is a New Jersey native who is based in Brooklyn and on a constant quest to figure out bi-coastal living. In her spare time, she loves going to stand-up comedy shows, traveling, taking photos, soaking up all culture in all forms, and spending time with loved ones. She is inspired by creative and visionary people who live their fullest lives by centering joy, pursuing their passions, advancing justice and challenging the status quo. She finds joy in shared cultural and political experiences, and is always down for a spontaneous dance party. Her cultural diet includes 90s hip hop, anything written by Rebecca Solnit, MACRO productions, Melody Eshani, Still Processing, and all things Brene Brown.
