The second in our “Get To Know Us” series, meet our design guru Shoshana Torn!
-What do is your role at The Engaging Educator? I help with everything from designing stickers and the newsletter to managing the website. My role at EE reflects my other freelance work: interdisciplinary. I first joined the EE team in February of 2014 as the Administrative Coordinator, then Program Coordinator, and am thrilled to continue in this capacity.
-Where are you from and how did you make it to NYC? Baltimore, hon! I landed in the city just around four years ago to finish my B.A. in Art History at NYU. Since then, I’ve boomeranged between the two cities (and other countries) but I can’t let go of the New York feeling.
-When did you first start to love Improv? I came to know Improv from the large world of icebreakers and camp games used to teach Leadership and Communication skills. I’m a big fan of learning through experience, so Improv is a great way to do just that!
-What is something you want to Improv(e) on? I am always seeking out new skills and challenges, currently evident in a just-completed Front-End Web Development course. While I embrace my procrastiworking habit, I constantly aim to Improv(e) my timing for projects.
-Where is your favorite place in the city? Any art museum without the crowds. Food-wise, Eataly is so heavenly I tend to forget about the tourists.
-What’s a not-so-secret skill you have? I proudly have a great sense of direction, and often act as a Google Maps translator for friends. That being said, I do love getting lost and un-lost wandering the city.
-“AaahhhOOOgah” makes me feel ready to move forward!
-“Yes, and” to Doughnuts/Donuts: I don’t care how you spell it, I want one.
