Hey there!

My name is Natasha but everyone tends to call me by one of the following nickname variations: Tasha/Tashi/Tash….so feel free to pick your favorite and roll with it.

I like to think that I am still trying to figure out who I really am but will share a few random things that I know to be true about myself up until this point…

– I am a rock climber! I climb all the time and climb just about everything. You can usually spot me from a mile away because I am always the kid sporting her climbing shoes on the subway & covered from head to toe in chalk 24/7

-I tend to throw in super bad puns for absolutely no reason mid-conversation. I wish I could say they were actually funny but you know what they say, practice makes perfect 😉

-I LOVE listening to music. I can’t play an instrument to save my life but will spend hours listening to my favorite artists from Father John Misty and the Fleet Foxes to some of the oldies but goodies including The Beatles, The Police and Talking Heads.

-More than anything I love to laugh/smile so extra brownie points to anyone who can get a giggle out of me (which is not hard at all I promise haha!)

My Spanish speaking abilities are pretty limited so I look forward to being able to fully immerse myself in the language over the course of the semester & leave with a whole new sense of confidence in speaking Spanish. I am so excited to meet all of you and spend the next few months waking up to new and unknown adventures.

happy packing & see you all very soon!
