How do you move to New York City and stay sane and not be broke?

Look at this kid. That’s Ben Popken on the night he moved to New York City. He just spent the past three days on a Greyhound from Denver to Manhattan. The last leg of the journey was shared with twenty just-paroled convicts. Look at his smile. He has no idea what he’s in for.

After reading our post, “HOW TO: Re-Up Your Lease, Keep The Same Rent,” Tim in Wisconsin Falls, Wisconsin, asks,

    “You pay $1650 a month rent for an apartment. What do you eat? I am barely getting by with $425.00 a month for a house. I understand it is New York but I have always wondered how New Yorkers manage to eat after paying huge rents each month. I have never been to NY so I cant say much but…

Hello! My name is Amanda Kuff. I am currently enrolled at Florida State University, where I am working towards my Bachelor’s degree in Media/Communication Studies with a minor in Hospitality. Although it may seem as though Communication and Hospitality have nothing to do with one another, I chose to concentrate my studies in these fields because of my interest in becoming a Public Relations specialist for luxury hotels and resorts.

My passion for this dream career stemmed from my experience working in the hospitality industry. Immediately after graduating high school, I was hired by Loews Miami Beach Hotel and Resort as a front desk agent. Throughout my tenure at Loews, I learned various aspects relating to hospitality, such as; customer service, food and beverage, and room inventory control. It was at this point in the very beginning of my career that I decided working with hotels and resorts was a passion of mine.

As a student at FSU, I have had the privilege of taking communication courses that have offered me the opportunity to create social marketing plans and campaigns. These assignments focus on inspiring pro-social behavioral changes in the public.  With the knowledge and experience of persuading the general public, I am confident that I can succeed in the field of Public Relations.

Throughout my years as a college student, I have maintained a full-time job and course load of 15 credit hours. One of my biggest achievements has been maintaining a 3.2 GPA, despite having to work 30 plus hours per week. Even though I have a somewhat busy schedule, I always make time for my hobbies. On my free time, I thoroughly enjoy taking and editing pictures, cooking, and practicing my make-up artistry on friends. I would definitely define myself as an environmentalist concerned with reducing my carbon footprint and an animal lover concerned with euthanasia in animal shelters.
