On a beautiful July day in Provence, France our own Sarah Endline, Mastermind and Chief Rioter, married her French beau, Jean-Luc! We'll share more photos soon, but here's a quick taste of their lavendar-filled wedding day!

Hello, my name is Anny Liu and I'm very excited to be a part of the sweetriot team! I was born in Chengdu China, but I was raised for most of my life in Orlando, Florida. Though I loved the sunshine state, I have to say my favorite parts of living in NYC now are learning about different cultures, the convenience and all the opportunities to try new things! I like all kinds of music sans country, but my favorite artist would have to be Florence and the Machine. Like many that move to NYC, I've always been a huge fan of music, possibly a result of the 14 years of piano I've practiced. I also really love to swim (my favorite pool game is marco polo!), but one of the most unique things about me right now is probably that when I run, for some reason I always find myself holding my thumbs up! When at Sweetriot, you can probably find me eating my favorite Quirky Quinoa Crunchy bar, though the Coconut bar comes close in second. I hope I've helped you get to know me a little more, riot on!
Our next intern we want to introduce you to is Shadiyat! Here's a little bit about who she is and what she brings to our team!
I'm from Atlanta, Georgia. My favorite thing about NYC is the free concerts and great restaurants. I love different kinds of music and most of it is pretty calming. My favorite artists in no specific order are Justin Nozuka and Childish Gambino. My favorite Sweetriot product is the Kickin' Coconut RiotBar but the 70% Nibs with espresso are a close second. Interesting facts... I took Latin for 6 years, I only like strawberry ice cream with real strawberries, anything else is just rude, and I'm really good at guessing song names within the first couple seconds (on a good day, I can name the album too).
Next up in our Summer Intern intro's is Candice, who might be the most fashionable girl we know. Read a bit about her, in her own words!
My name is Candice Yan, a NYU graduate student from China. I have been in NYC for less than 1 year and already fall in love with it the first day I got here. In NYC, everyone is from elsewhere so you never feel alone or isolated. In this city of art, you have the chance to experience everything as long as you have the gut to imagine. I love jazz and soul music, so my favorite singers are Adele and Rebecca Ferguson. My favorite sweetriot product is 70% Dark Chocolate with Quirky Quinoa.
Three interesting facts about Candice:
1. People always mistake me for Japanese and will speak Japanese to me on the street.
2. Different from the quiet appearance, I love adventures and excitement.
3. I am Chinese, but I took western literature as my major in college.
This summer sweetriot is excited to welcome several interns to our Riot Room in NYC! We love how unique our interns are and we want to give you a little introduction to each of them. We are starting today with a little bit about Marion, in her own adorable words!
My name is Marion, and I will be the French rioter during 2 months! My optimism and my joy of living make me a funny girl. My French accent and my mistakes make people laugh.
Visiting NYC was my dream and now my dream comes true. Every morning I wake up, take the subway from Brooklyn to Manhattan and listen to some American RnB like Mary J. Blige while admiring the landscape on the Williamsburg Bridge.
I really enjoy coming to work every morning into a warm and relaxed atmosphere. And I absolutely fall in love with the delicious coconut bar! I could eat this all the day… And that’s what I do.
