Famous People I’ve Met
I haven’t met many famous people in my life, but here are a few. They only count if I had some sort of verbal exchange. Concerts, conferences, and any sort of event in which you pay to see somebody doesn’t count.
Fall 2018 - Palmer Luckey
During my internship, we hosted an info session for Palmer Luckey’s company, Anduril. Later that evening, we had a private dinner with him and our team. I had a chance to have a quick conversation with him at the end. I asked him if he did psychedelics to which his answer was no.
Summer 2017 - Rupi Kaur.
I developed Rupi Kaur’s website during my second internship which she still uses to this day. The team was me and the lead designer. We had a handful of meetings with Rupi and her manager to discuss the details of the website.
Spring 2012 - Alessia Cara.
Alessia Cara and I went to the same high school but she was a year older.
Remember back in highschool when you missed a test and the teacher would send you to another room to write it? She got sent to my grade 9 religion class. There was a spot open next to me, and Alessia asked me if anyone was sitting there. I said, “no.” She said, “thanks.” I responded, “your welcome.”
