Hi there! My name is Tessa, and I am junior at the University of Rochester double majoring in Film and Media Studies and Business.  I was born and raised in Middletown, New Jersey and have traveled halfway around the world to study, backpack, and film my way through New Zealand.  I'm so excited to share what I see with you.  Get ready for a wild ride!

Wow! What a busy month it has been.  I honestly cannot believe that I have been here so long already.  It feels like just yesterday I was eating my last slice of pizza in Jersey!!
