When I'm not juggling my way though life I like to juggle balls with my hands or with my feet
Aparna RamanujamPenn Atma
If you see someone walking around holding a full-sized bottle of Sriracha, 89% chance it's me. If you see them eating (drinking?) it straight, 100% me.

I’m a hybrid of Grizz from We Bear Bears and Ben from Parks & Rec. The way to a friend’s heart is through their stomach! All about that swing (dancing) life!
Kanika MohanWest Philly Swingers
When I’m not swing dancing with fellow mentors, I’m probably stalking Sugar Philly. Or getting rolled ice cream. Or hunting for brick toast. I like dessert.

Very few things give me more satisfaction than baking bread and watching dough rise from the magic of yeast. Other than Trader Joe’s. And PAACH. And macarons.
