Jocelyn: I just graduated law school and will be starting my career as a lawyer in the field of civil litigation soon!
Rachel: I am a medical student! I'm not sure exactly what my area of practice will be but I am leaning towards become an emergency room physician.
3. Where are you from?
Jocelyn: I am originally from New York, about an hour outside of New York city, but I moved to Vermont for high school and have lived all around New England since then.
Rachel: I am originally from Vermont, about an hour outside of Burlington.
4. Where do you live now?
Now we live together in Maine! We just moved here in Maine and we absolutely love it here.
5. Tell us a bit about yourselves.
Well we have been together for a little over a year now but we have been best friends since we were 21! We both identify as bisexual and realized over time that our relationship was much more than a friendship to us. We both have pretty intense career aspirations so when we're not working or in school we try to prioritize as much time as possible to spend together!
6. How did you meet?
We met in college! We actually played on an ultimate frisbee team together in college and like we said earlier we have been best friends for a long time before we began dating.
7. How did you discover your interest in photography?
Jocelyn takes all our photos on our blog and instagram account! I, Jocelyn, have been dabbling in photography for years and it wasn't until our Instagram account started taking off that I really invested time and energy into teaching myself the actual skills need for photography.
8. What inspired you to start blogging and making Youtube videos?
Well we technically made our blog and YouTube to branch off our Instagram. We started our Instagram to be more of a part of the LGBTQ+ community. We haven't frequented many queer spaces and so our Instagram was our way to connect more with the LGBTQ+ community. As we grew our account on Instagram we decided to branch into a blog and a YouTube to continue our growth!
9. What are your plans/goals for your Youtube channel and blog?
Our goals are quite simple, we want to keep being a part of the online LGBTQ+ community and growing the friendships we've made. As our account has grown another goal has developed which is to continue to be a visible bisexual couple. We want to ensure that people can see two bisexual women be in love and provide that representation.
10. What’s next for you?
In life, Jocelyn will hopefully be starting her job as a lawyer soon and Rachel will move further in her path to becoming a doctor. Regarding our social media presence we're not sure what's next! We want to keep growing and keep putting energy into our account. We both love the holiday season so I'm sure you will see our account celebrating the fall and the holidays! But mostly we're just going to keep being authentic and visible in our love!
11. What is your motto in life?
I'm not sure if we have a motto per se, but we definitely have a mentality. We both are very positive people and want to bring 100% energy into everything we do, our careers, our love, our accounts, so we just want to make sure that we are always pushing ourselves and being the best versions of ourself we can be.
