Author Jinna Yang has learned some things about New York City. Everything doesn’t come easily, so you have to really want to be there to work for what you can get. It can also get lonely even with all the people around. People are rude only if you are in their way. You’ll need to get used to carrying a bag around. If you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere. The initial shine of the city can wear off over the years, but New York is still an awesome place.
- New York is not for everyone its faced paced and can be unforgiving but if you do stay it will make you stronger and more resilient
- Learning to carry the things that you need so that you can maximize your time between work and the gym or any other places you need to go becomes a must
