I Live In A One-Bedroom In Brooklyn — & My Rent Is $1495 A Month

Did you have any competition for the apartment, or trouble signing it?
“It was the first apartment that I was applying for on my own, no co-signer. Plus, I was technically a freelancer. I had four different jobs at the time, so I had to piece it all together. I was like, Please trust me, I’ll pay rent. I didn’t have one consistent pay stub for them, so I was nervous they weren’t going to give it to me.”
