Hi, Everyone!

Welcome to this week’s episode. Today, you’re going to hear a chat with my college roommate and good friend Jessica Buenaventura. I’m really happy to have Jessica on this episode. And in it, we’re going to reminisce about our college experience at UCSB, also known as the University of California, Santa Barbara. We both graduated from there in 2011. So quite a long time ago now.

So the UC is situated about one hundred miles north of Los Angeles on the California coast and in Santa Barbara. Santa Barbara is a phenomenally beautiful city, which is commonly referred to as the American Riviera, because just like the French Riviera, it’s famous for its world class cuisine, boating, wine tours, art and beaches. It also draws in a lot of rich and famous people. So Santa Barbara is just north of Montecito, which is home to Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Steve Martin and of course, the late Michael Jackson. A lot of other famous Americans also live there. It’s sort of paradise.
