Clarissa Palomar is a graduate from St. John’s University and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in English. She is the Vice President of Academic Partnerships and formerly Global Tassels’ Global Operating Director for Asia and the Pacific Islands. As a New York native, she is used to the fast-paced and ever-changing urban lifestyle and loves every bit of it. The city is one of her greatest teachers, providing the skills in working with a variety of people from all different walks of life.

Her passion for literature, city-life, and people leads to her biggest love: writing.
