There was not one factor that brought Manaal Shareh (@nyuliberalstudies ’22), who grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, to New York—there were many, not the least of which was her mother.
“When my mom was my age, she moved from Pakistan to America,” says Manaal. “And so she very much encouraged me to do something similar—go somewhere very different. She was always, ‘Broaden your horizons. You need to go somewhere that’s different from where you grew up.’ ”
In her two years at NYU, Manaal, who is from San Ramon, Calif., has embraced the city—and the university—in ways that make her a collective personification of Yelp!, LinkedIn, and the New York Times’ “Metropolitan Diary”:
On the benefits of working at the bakery in Whole Foods: “I make a lot of strawberry shortcake because that’s something we make it work. So it’s a really easy recipe that people tend to like. I’m not very good at cooking. I just kind of like to do it. I made some Tres Leches just the other day. That was really good. And today I’m making macaroons.”
On her favorite places in New York City: “I really like Jackson Heights. But I also like the Upper East Side—the museums and then the park. I really like that part of the city—feels very New Yorky.”

Today marks the passing of spring into #summer, called Lixia (立夏) according to the traditional Chinese lunar calendar. It’s a season characterized by a rise in temperature, more rain and thunder, and plentiful harvests.☀️⛈️🌽🌾🥚👩🌾
“My family always has this tradition of parents or elderly preparing boiled eggs in knitted bags to hang over our children’s chests–this is symbolic of maintaining good health and preventing summer illnesses,” says Chinese Language Lecturer Gu Beilei who shared these photos from today with us. “We also cook tea eggs with dried tofu; it’s a traditional recipe I learned on Shanghai’s Yuyuan Road. From winter to summer we raise katydids, and now is the perfect time to enjoy their song.” ☀️🦗
