NewNewYorker of the Week: Erika Belezarian

2 Feb

The new year is bringing new New Yorkers! Although this isn’t a weekly feature, I like to post profiles of my readers whenever I can. If you or someone you know just moved to one of the five boroughs and would like to share their experiences on the interwebs, please let me know!

Today I give you Ms. Erika Belezarian, age 20, a student at John Jay College who has lived here less than two weeks! She’s living in West Harlem and plugging away on a combined Bachelor/Masters and doctorate in Forensic Psychology.

My living situation is: Student housing near City College, hoping to move down to Chelsea or the West Village this summer!

I moved here from: Longmeadow, Mass.

The best advice I’ve gotten so far is: to wear comfortable shoes even if they aren’t the most fashionable!

I’m most unsure about: getting to Queens. I have friends that live there, and I’m terrified I’ll get lost on the subway!

My biggest achievement so far has been: NOT getting lost!

The New Yorker I want to meet most is: Joe Zee, editor-at-large of Elle Magazine. Or Martha Stewart! (Eds note: Check out what it’s like to attend a ‘Martha’ taping here.)

My favorite song that mentions New York is: “Empire State of Mind” by Alicia Keys & Jay-Z.

The person I miss most today is: my parents, but I mostly miss my puppy, Izzie!

An interesting person I recently met is: my Applied Anthropology teacher. I think she’s going to be awesome!

My greatest discovery so far has been: realizing that even though I live in a huge city where there’s always something going on, sometimes there’s nothing to do!
