My name is Austa, and I’m a Los Angeles native who made the move to Washington, D.C. a few years ago to study at American University. Currently, I spend around 40 hours a week at National Geographic as an Executive Assistant. Before that, I interned at a few places like American Forests, a congressional office, Washington City Paper, and Taste of DC, and studied abroad for a semester in Brisbane, Australia.
This site is a predominantly a space for me to share my thoughts and experiences, as well as showcase some of my amateur photography. I’m also going to attempt to interview some badass ladies that I come into contact with in my day-to-day.
