She is now living in New York City and pursuing a career in publishing. Talya enjoys writing cultural commentary, specifically musings on the milieu of Generation Z and the way in which 20-somethings’ distinct frame of reference interprets contemporary books, music and television. Her writerly inspirations include Jia Tolentino, Carrie Battan, Jonathan Franzen and David Sedaris.
