Claudia Claveras, Digital Marketing Student & Content Creator

Notes on Making it to the Big Apple

This city makes me dream big and be ambitious with my goals. I believe that if you can make it here, you can make it everywhere.

Hello! My name is Claudia, I am from Spain and I've been living in New York since 2016. I am a Digital Marketing student in the city, I will be graduating this December! I am also a content creator for my social platforms and my blog called “From another Star”.

What brought you to New York?
I grew up in Spain and I have lived in different cities of the country like Canary Islands and Madrid. My life changed after a trip to New York when I absolutely fell in love with the city and I decided to try to make it happen here. Sometimes, I think that I was crazy to take such a drastic decision to leave my life in Madrid but something inside me was telling me to do it!

How is living in NYC different from living in Spain?
Honestly, getting used to the life in New York was a hard and long process but I have never regretted moving here. I actually feel that I have a romantic relationship with New York. 

Life in the city is a constant challenge that makes you grow and mature. New York is a chaotic jungle which is so hard and stressful at times, but also so incredible -New York is full of energy and inspiration. I believe that in this city anything is possible, especially if you are a hard worker. This city makes me dream big and be ambitious with my goals. I believe that if you can make it here, you can make it everywhere.

What are you currently studying?
I have always been a creative person. In Spain, I studied fashion & photography and I always loved sharing my photos on social media platforms. New York opened my eyes to a new creative world and I started to create more professional, relevant content. Digital Marketing studies also helped me a lot with marketing strategy, brand development and website building. My near future dream is creating my own brand!

How did you start blogging?
My blog “From another Star” was established in 2016, during my first month in the city. In the beginning, it was more of a visual diary where I used to share my personal stories, but now it has evolved to become a site to inspire others with the things that I'm interested in, like outfits, beauty tips, healthy recipes, workouts & places to visit in the Big Apple.
