I moved to Philadelphia from Indiana a little over eight years ago for a job in fashion. I am now an e-commerce director. This city proved to be one of the hardest places to live. Gun shots at 3:00 AM, too many feral animals to save, and angry people. But from all the negativity comes spirit, lessons and opportunity. My object is a talisman I created to get my job in Philadelphia and become successful. It worked. And the city helped make all that happen.
