Native Highlight: Boston Food Gram
What does Neuroscience, dentistry, and food all have in common? They are what define Emily Chan, the owner behind the popular Boston food account Boston Food Gram (@bostonfoodgram). She didn't let graduating with a degree in neuroscience, and a future in dentistry stop her from enjoying her passion for the Boston food scene and sharing it with the world!
Read on for a behind the scenes look of an Instagram food blogger and find out about Emily's favorite spots!
The Inspiration Behind The Account
Let's just add "well-traveled" to her resume! Emily always had a love for food, but she discovered a way to creatively share that with friends and followers. What started as @emchaneats, aimed at documenting her study abroad in Copenhagen, quickly turned into a way she could share quality photos of the vast landscape of quality meals in the Boston area.
The Boston Food Scene
Emily really enjoys the tight knit community that the Boston food scene holds. She has met some truly amazing individuals that share her passion for food and are committed to spreading how great the Boston community is to the rest of the world!
Talk about an oxymoron! A dentist that loves sweets?! If anything, Emily is a proponent for bringing light to the world that having good oral hygeine and loving dessert can coexist! That's huge news!
We also love the commitment she has that even through sleep deprivation, she is still out there helping us discover the best Boston has to offer.
Why You Need To Follow @bostonfoodgram Right Now
We agree with the quality over quantity. In a world where everyone is competing for your attention, many go with the spread and pray approach to gain your attention. It ends up creating a ton of noise, but Emily focuses on only posting quality photos that give you the real perspective of the place.
