And we’re back to the steady stream of Californians! We’d like to introduce Beca, one of the Blanc & Otus interns. She’s originally from Alameda and lived in San Diego for a few years while going to UCSD (and taking her favorite class, History of Rock). She’s not quite sure how she landed in PR with her major in Economics, but we’re happy she did!

She’s on the correct side of history, also believing the dress is blue and black, and she’s a seasoned Coachella veteran. The best concert she’s been to is Coachella ‘16—sorry Lady Gaga and Kendrick…
