Member of the Month: Jing

Tell us about yourself! It can be about anything – where you grew up, your professional background, your hobbies, etc. Hi TAP folks! I’m Jing and I’ve lived in New York for almost 2 years now. I grew up in Upstate NY and used to visit the city with my family but I’d argue the city is much more fun to experience as an adult. I look for any and every reason to get outdoors, whether it’s going for a bike ride around Manhattan, playing soccer at Pier 40 or swatting tennis balls at Hudson River Park. My time at home is spent trying to keep my three plant babies alive - I have a Birds of...

Since then, I've wanted to help contribute to building community, and TAP seemed like a perfect place to start!  What do you...
