This year, I had the opportunity to attend the Nexus Global Summit 2019 in New York, the first day of which was being held at the United Nations HQ (oh, how I always wanted to be there) and the remaining days at the New School in Manhattan!
Let me tell you a little about Nexus before I start putting up the amazing photos of the entire event:

This was an almost failed attempt at creating A-T-L-A-S-C-O-R-P-S on our palms but somehow whoever wrote that, did a terrible job :/ but the picture still turned out to be great 🙂
Overall, it was an amazing experience, one that drained us physically and emotionally but worth it!!
