Happy Tuesday! Today is the next installment in our series of Twinterviews (Twitter-length interviews, that is), where every question is answered by an amazingly Inspirational Susty Partier in 140 characters... more or less. Emily Sprague works on humanitarian crisis, explores, and indulges a healthy level of curiosity. See below for more!
1. Describe yourself personally.
I'm a humanitarian designer and the focus of my work in architecture is community- based post-disaster reconstruction.
During the week I lead the New York office of MGA
, where I'm researching the impacts of post-disaster housing strategies and developing our reconstruction program. During the weekend, I explore!
2. What inspires you?
Learning! I'm very curious and learning from other people always introduces something amazing and unpredictable into my life.
3. Word association: “Susty”?
4. What good media have you consumed recently that we should check out?
I love the articles on the 99u! I'm also ever-looking-forward to the next episode of Radiolab. Jad, Robert, and team are beautiful storytellers.
5. Your favorite eco-friendly living or partying tip?
My general philosophy is to read labels and think through what I'm consuming. It's pretty common sense but once it becomes a habit it makes a big difference.
6. Life lesson you want to pass on?
Always be kind, even if you're having a terrible day. Talk to strangers. Nurture and support the aspirations and talents of the people in your life.
7. Your favorite Susty Party product and why?
