As Vans Girls, we all have a creative intuition, but our friend Shriya Samavai is a Jack of all trades when it comes to the artistic realm. From her versatile photography projects and launching a new clothing line, to writing personal essays and music reviews, she’s constantly finding new creative outlets to give her spin on things. Moving from a small town to NYC a few years ago, Shriya’s not afraid of the spotlight or to break away from her comfort zone. Her engineering-turned-art history college major switch is just the tip of the iceberg on her multi-faceted endeavors. We hung out with Shriya on the edge of Roosevelt Island to shoot in front of the city skyline and chat about her newest pursuits.
