Leslie An

Editorial Assistant


Leslie grew up in a hellish suburb and went to Dartmouth College, where she discovered her personality. She took her latent coolness to NYC, where she continues character development via thrifted baggy clothes, books, overworked Spotify playlists, angsty journal entries, excursions to fresh air, custom sweetgreen bowls, dopamine drenched entertainment, and manic spurts of inspiration. If not emptying her pocket for a roll of film downtown at a cash-only photography store, she might be at REI, dreaming of a bohemian life, or sitting by an outlet anywhere, hunched over her refurbished Macbook Air that likes to spontaneously die when unplugged.
