“ Stay humble, hustle hard. “ - K.C.

I introduce - Kathryn Colohan
( originally from Baltimore, MD to Atlanta, GA )

I stumbled upon Kathryn’s involvement in the design world via a marketing post for a design conference. From there, I decided to reach out and message her about discussing her time in the design industry thus far.

With these interviews, I want to shed light on more than just what the individuals currently do, but instead give you a little insight to the journeys and paths that lead up to their arrival.

Check out the interview below and feel free to send Kathryn any questions you may have as a current and/or future artist/designer: kathryn.colohan@gmail.com

Sofa Talks with an Educator ... 9.3%

Special Education & Behavior Analysis Specialist

I introduce - Jennifer Riley
( originally from Chicago, IL to Atlanta, GA )

I sat down with Special Education Pre-School Teacher and Applied Behavior Analysis Specialist, Jennifer Riley, to discuss her journey, her love for the study of behavior analysis, and the difficulties she has faced as an educator.

Jennifer has had quite a number of breakthroughs in regard to resolving behavioral issues in special needs children. We touch on some of the toughest experiences she has had thus far and how she manages to continue to give 100% each day.

Our educators deserve so much more credit than we as a society give them. I hope this interview sparks constructive thought and sheds light on the emotional, mental, and physical strain that comes with being a full contributor to the future of our up and coming youth of the world while also enlightening you on children’s ability to learn.

Check out the interview below and feel free to send Jennifer any questions you may have as current/future parents and/or teachers: jariley26@gmail.com

Jennifer, thank you so much for being available despite your strenuous schedule and for truly being such a dedicated educator.

Creating with Mehwish Wasi ... 9.2%

Mehwish and I met due to a mutual friend sharing her work with me via Instagram. After finding out that she was a full-time software consultant, I wanted to know what inspired her to pursue this particular craft so heavily in her spare time - from creating a website to producing a number of commission pieces for local markets and Atlanta residents.

From our dialogue, both on and off camera, Mehwish has such a bright personality - coupled with intellect and humor. It was refreshing to see someone fully immerse themselves in a form of artistic expression and openly discuss the ups and downs of their progression as an artist.

I had the opportunity to stop by her creative space this past weekend - check out the video and her website below!

Biggest Lesson ... 9.1%

First off, I would like to give thanks to every individual who took part in this project. I really appreciate the responses/feedback from all those who participated.

Life is all about lessons - what we take away from those lessons is precisely how we grow as people.

We are all running the race.

We all endure different types of pain.

It doesn’t make us any better or worse than the next person.

We can learn so much from one another.

Our struggles make us who we are.

Embrace them.

Embrace others.

Sarah moved to Atlanta, Georgia almost 5 years ago from a small town in North Carolina. She is almost a full year into her food blogging journey and is already a stand-out foodie in the city.

She loves all things food (of course), architecture, various forms of design, and exploring/discovering everything the city of Atlanta has to offer.

In this interview, we discuss her journey into food blogging, her personal experiences moving from a small town, what continues to motivate her, and issues that we as ‘millennials’ tend to struggle with in life.

Check it out below!

Thank you, Sarah - it has been a pleasure to get to know you more over these last few months and I commend you on your work ethic and tenacity!
