I’m a complete Burgh girl, born and raised, and take pride in my city through volunteering around the community and exploring every nook and cranny it has to offer. That same sense of pride that anyone reading this feels. It was my goal to channel what I feel for this city into something positive, and something I connected with. Boring Pittsburgh reflected a lot of what I felt about this city. Yeah, every city has its faults, but Pittsburgh’s like the family you can’t get away from. You want to visit other cities, and you may even move away, but you will always know that you are Pittsburgher at heart.
When I got the opportunity to represent Boring Pittsburgh and sport some awesome Burgh Verified merch, I jumped at the chance. And thank God I did! Veronica Varos was a complete blast to hang out with. Also, being Burgh Verified herself, Veronica was a pro and knew exactly where and how to shoot the pictures you all see. Getting to keep the t-shirt was an honor. I wore it the next day at work with my usual cardigan and khakis. I think anything that so boldly states “Burgh Verified” isn’t questioned by anyone from here, period, except maybe to ask how you got it!
Pittsburgh, I love you. No matter where I go and who I become, I will always know you are my city. I will rep the Steelers, the Pirates and most of all, the Penguins wherever I roam! Yinz keep it honest, and keep bleeding black and gold.
