Some “it girls” get this title because of their popularity and presence at every party and event while some earn it with their positivity, talent, and eye for creativity, almost forming a boundless connection with the onlooker. It won’t be difficult to grasp why Eda belongs in the latter group.

When the subject at hand is Burning Man, I can’t fit it into one sentence. It was an amazing experience from the beginning ‘till end with all its difficulties and experiences.
