Noa Bell studied Fashion Merchandising in school and now works at a Creative Strategist in NYC. Currently she lives in the East Village.  This story was submitted in collaboration with ENVSN.

What did you study in school and why?
I studied Fashion Merchandising. I was lost and was watching The City and thought I wanted to be a fashion PR girl. I’ve since chosen a very different path.

What is your current job? 
I’m a Creative Strategist and Project Manager. I work in the Experiential space helping take brand stories and bring them to life.

What is a challenge you faced or currently face and how are you overcoming it?

I’m caught in a space of big corporate companies and finding the balance between creativity and business. I’m overcoming this by taking on my own creative projects.

What does it mean for you to be powerful?

Power to me comes in the form of action and execution. I feel powerful when I’m doing and bringing to life all of things I’ve imagined.

Do you have a favorite product or item you love that makes you feel great?

I can’t live without vintage  jackets, I’m always cold and jackets jazz up any outfit.

What are your passions, hobbies, interests?

I have an infinite amount of passions and hobbies. My focus right now is creating art and health and wellness.

Is there anything else you would like to share?

I believe in taking risks even when the outcome isn’t predictable, there’s always a beautiful lesson to be learned in all of our stories.
