With the goal of doing urban planning, Natalie is currently pursuing her Masters in Applied Urban Science and Informatics at NYU to complement her background in ecology and environmental science. She was born and raised in Singapore, a small island-nation in Southeast Asia. Moving to NYC after completing undergraduate studies in Los Angeles, she is curious to discover similarities and differences between all the cities she has lived in. Most of all, she is incredibly passionate in place-making, and believes that spaces should be activated with meaning and potential for stories to continue being made.
