Hi, I’m Raphaela.

Hello! My name is Raphaela, otherwise known as Social Raph. Welcome to my website!

In 2018, I decided to build my own website as a way to express and share things about my life: my dreams and aspirations, thoughts, advice, passions, and everything else that this beautiful life has to offer. This is as real as it gets, and I promise to always be 110% authentic.

If you’re new to my life, hello! Here are some general facts about me: I am 23 years old, living right outside the beautiful city of Boston. I graduated from Assumption College with a bachelor’s in Business. I’m a first-generation college graduate, which has made me and my family extremely proud. Throughout college, I have experience working in various fields such as social media marketing, digital marketing, traditional marketing, Facebook/Instagram advertising, and market research.

Now you get why I pretty much live, breathe, and eat social media, right? This is what led to the creation of  Social Raph! 

In my spare time, I read books and take pictures. Education is something that I take very seriously. My goal is to learn something new every single day. I guess this stems from my career. Photography is something I’m extremely passionate about. When I think about photographing something, I have a vision for the way that I want it captured and edited. Everything good comes from vision and strategy.

I fluently speak 3 languages: English, Romanian, and Albanian. Throughout high school and college, I studied Latin Honors, so technically I know 4 languages, but sadly it’s a dead language…

I’m a city girl. Words cannot describe how much I love the rush of the city. There’s something about it that invigorates me. It makes me feel like I’m home. Manhattan and Boston have my heart, but the ocean has my soul. I’m convinced that there’s a gravitational pull when it comes to me and the sea. The ocean has a significant way of soothing your mind and body. The balance between these two has always kept me grounded.

When I’m not traveling, taking photos, or reading a book, you can find me helping out at my family’s business! http://www.bageltimeusa.com

I have also started taking clients for social management and content creation! A passion project of mine that started a couple of years ago. If you or someone you know wants to connect with me on this topic, please do not hesitate to reach out! I could spend hours talking about this.

There you have it. Everything (mostly) that there is to know about me. Thank you for sticking around and taking the time to read this post! I’m thankful for all my friends and family for giving me that extra push. Words can’t even begin to describe how extremely excited I am for this journey ahead, and I hope that you’re ready to be a part of it, too.
