This is the second time I’ve run into Arpana on the streets of New York, but the first time was quite awhile ago (when she was wearing a giant fur coat so I didn’t recognize her). Once she reminded me of the location, I remembered the shot immediately.
As we were chatting I mentioned how cute her necklace was. She was very happy to tell me it was her own design and that she’s selling these necklaces on her Instagram @Arpanaraya and that 20% of the proceeds from the sales are going to help the earthquake victims in Nepal, where she is from.
