Shoshanna Shapiro

Shoshanna is Jessa's younger, bubblier cousin and a surprising source of wisdom -- though lately, she could stand to listen to her own, oft-given advice. After a year of sexual escapades and slacking, she’s graduated late from NYU and is struggling to land a job, throwing a major kink into her 15-year-plan. To make matters worse, she’s failed to win back Ray, who’s been hooking up with Marnie on the sly.
