Hi, my name is JANELLE RYAN & I'm a NYC-based STORYTELLER...

At 20 years old, I made an abrupt decision to leave Somerville, Massachusetts behind and do the big city thang in Brooklyn, New York. Needless to say, I not only stuck to my guns and packed my moving van, but I actually thrived out here. I’m not saying it was all peachy keen. I’ve certainly had my share of bad experiences, but New York City, or as I like to call it: Hollyhood, has been good to me overall. I’ve laughed. I’ve cried. And met so many interesting (and crazy) people along the way. I’ve worked grave yard shifts at dead end jobs, went days without eating or sleeping, and literally walked miles through this concrete jungle of a city to get where I am today. I have truly blossomed into a promising young woman, with success on the horizon. I just have to keep going.
