Foreword by Rachel Malaga
Phoebe and I met at TPAP (The Performing Arts Project) this past summer. My first impression was I thought she was really funny and cool. And I was very correct in that impression. Phoebe can make me laugh so hard I can’t breathe, specifically with her Buddy from Cake Boss impression. Phoebe is a great friend and great listener1. She is one of the funniest people I’ve ever met but also someone I have bared my soul to on multiple occasions. Her energy is infectious. There are people who enter your life that you know will always be part of you, and Pheebs is one of those people for me.

1 I was also at TPAP this summer, and infamously had much trouble keeping track of my dorm key. One night I locked myself out and Pheeb found me in the hallway and invited me in to her room to sleep in the open bed. She gave me a pillow from under her own head. 2 @golfiinos
