"I got the call from Harlequin in the midst of very some troubling times for our country. Not only was New York still battling COVID-19, but the news had just come out about George Floyd’s death, and I didn’t know how to process such a beautiful personal moment and such collective pain at the same time.

Thankfully, my mom was there (virtually) to remind me that my joy is an act of protest. And so, I celebrated as we do in 2020: with champagne and wine on Zoom with my friends and family."
