This week’s Student Feature is a junior from Oswego, IL. Shout out to Taylor Anhalt! Lets learn a little bit more about this coffee and Supernatural enthusiast:
English and Creative Writing Major
Where are you currently interning?
I am an intern at National Book Critic Circle, Literary Death Match, and Solid Objects!
What inspired you to come to the New York Arts Program?
I knew that I wanted to pursue a career in the Writing and Publishing Industry – which I also knew that New York is a huge hub for that field. Before I head down that path, I wanted to explore the details of what goes on in a Publishing agency and be exposed to the industry.
Favorite Part of living in New York?
I love that there are coffee shops on each block and that I can run by the Hudson River!
Least favorite part of living in New York?
My least favorite part about living in New York is that there are too many people – and some of them do not know how to walk!
Manhattan and Brooklyn (where it is nice and quiet)
Favorite go-to food place in New York?
It isn’t necessarily a food place – but I LOVE going to Perpetuum Cafe.Their caramel latte is the BEST.
Any tips on saving money?
Definitely try to create a budget list – even though I know that it’s hard to stay on the budget. AND go to Trader Joes for grocery!
Have you seen any celebs yet?
Yes! I was able to get stand-by tickets to Saturday Night Live where Will Ferrell was the host and I worked at an event and saw National Book Critic Circle Award Winning Authors!
Advice for our future NYAP interns?
The city might be a little overwhelming but you will get used to it really quick. You’ll learn to realize that its actually quite simple to get around and figure your way around NYC.
