I'm so excited to speak to Michaela O'Shaughnessy this week. You may know her as Life Of A Lady Bear on Instagram. Michaela is from Galway and moved to New York 6 years ago.
A real Irish success story, Michaela has worked for MTV. Teen Vogue, Glamour and now Instagram.
I really wanted to do a podcast this week that reflected how Irish people abroad may be feeling right now, missing home and unsure what lies ahead for Christmas.
It's been a long year for us all, but everyday I have felt so lucky to have my family just around the corner.
I get messages every week from Irish people living abroad who listen to my podcast - in Australia, Dubai, Canada and the US and i know many of them miss home so much.
I wanted to do something this week to let them know that I hope they are not too lonely and manage to get home this festive season.
Michaela has a fascinating life. She lives on the Upper East Side of New York, she speaks about fellow Irish woman Samantha Barry who hired her and was so supportive.
We speak about the madness of this year, how it made her love New York even more and her advice to people who have a dream.
