Q&A with Nausheen Farishta 

What is your favorite book of all time? 

The Harry Potter series. I love that I can take a break from adulthood by opening any book to any page and always feel like I'm picking right back up where I left off. 

What is your favorite non-tourist place in Chicago? 

Any bridge over the river that lets me take in the views as I walk to and from work each day. 

Would you rather have the office stocked 24/7 with Starbucks coffee or Garrett popcorn?

Starbucks -- coffee is comfort. 

What is one thing people in the wouldn't know about you? 

I have a deep passion for writing, editing and playing with words in general. If I could have any job in the world, I would combine this passion with my wanderlust and be a nomadic travel+career writer. I already have a few pieces published online, so it's a start! 

If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would it be?  

Italy, likely Rome. Or Madrid, where I lived for a year previously.
