Cailin Russo, does the name ring a bell? I’m sure many of you know who she is; but if you don’t, she is a Californian beauty, with the face and voice of an angel. During the past year she has taken the world by storm, with her face on almost every billboard, in almost every magazine, and most likely in 97% of the store windows young adults are shopping at!
She is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Last week, during her stay in New York City, she had a meet and greet in Washington Square Park.
Being the huge fan that I am, I put on my best outfit, got on the train and headed into the city to meet with her. When she finally arrived in the park, she was overjoyed with the amount of people that had been waiting to meet her. She thanked everyone for being there and then stated that she wanted to take a picture with everyone present.
Usually, when you attend a meet and greet the atmosphere is forced and you often feel like the people you are there to meet are not very genuine. That was not the case with Cailin, she was very sweet and you could tell she was genuinely interested and cared about every person who was there. She engaged in conversation, and if someone stood in the back, she would pull them right up alongside her.
At one point, she let people wear her faux fur coat, that by the way is now on my wish list! She spent a little over an hour and a half in park laughing, joking, and taking pictures with her fans. She departed, only after taking several pictures with everyone and making sure to hug every single person goodbye.
All in all, I had a really great experience meeting Cailin Russo. Personally It is really comforting to know that there are people out there that are so successful and popular yet so humble and grateful.
