International air travel is an exhausting test of character.

Your task: Make it to the other side of the Atlantic.

What you are given: a one foot by two foot space, a selection of slightly outdated films (which, if you’re a movie buff like I am, the best ones you’ve already seen), a small meal which includes carbs on carbs and drinks on drinks, and most likely a very close stranger next to you for 7+ hours.

Your reward: Europe!

Do you choose to accept?

The College of New Jersey, Class of 2013!
It’s been extremely surreal spending the last two days graduating, first from the College as a whole (May 16) and then from the Communication Studies department (May 17), but I feel fully prepared to take the world by storm, and I owe that confidence to TCNJ.
For one final time, I want to thank my loved ones (especially my parents!), friends and professors for standing by me, challenging me, but ultimately making me a better person.
Thank you!

Safety Not Guaranteed
Rating: 5/5
Director: Colin Trevorrow
Year: 2012
Cast: Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass, Jake Johnson
Language: English
Genre: Independent Comedy

A team of journalists are dispatched to find out who’s behind a classified advertisement seeking a companion for time travel, with payment on return. After tracking down their oddball prey, the team has to decide how best to approach their subject (Netflix).

An adorably quirky indie *sort of* romantic comedy, Safety Not Guaranteed uses the typical twists and turns of a rom-com, but in unexpected ways. The characters are developed and endearing, and the plot will leave you feeling inspired.


A Thank You to my Alma Mater

The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) has been such a great adoptive “parent” for me these past two years, and today is the last day of my undergraduate career.

I transferred to TCNJ at the beginning of my junior year, when I felt scared and small, but the school’s community embraced me. In my first semester here, I was able to complete extensive research that resulted in one of the best papers in the nation for 2012.

At TCNJ, I grew into someone I’m proud of with real passion and real ambitions, but also a path I now know I want to take, and a means for me to achieve my goals.

Because of TCNJ I was able to go to England, complete research, meet professors that care, and form a network of people that I can always count on.

This is the last thing I will ever write in Kendall hall, the communication building. My home. I wanted my last words in this building, a building that has hosted so many of my words for so long, to be a thank you to the school that accepted a small scared girl and transformed her into a strong, brave woman.

Thank you.




Le Hérisson (The Hedgehog)
Rating: 4/5
Director: Mona Achache
Year: 2009
Cast: Josiane Balasko, Garance Le Guillermic, Togo Igawa
Language: French
Genre: Drama

Fed up with the world’s hypocrisy, an 11-year-old makes plans to commit suicide on the eve of her 12th birthday. But an unlikely bond with her building’s concierge and an older, elegant resident stands to alter her outlook on everything (Netflix).

Although slow at the beginning, this film captures your attention with its existentialism. In typical French fashion, watch out for the ending.


As part of a class assignment, classmates and I created a public relations firm named Lucky Beard & Gals public relations (LB&G) and were charged with writing the public relations plan for an on campus organization: Art Student Association (ASA). Overall, the plan involved formative research, audience segmentation, channel and media selection, competition analysis, evaluative research, a detailed budget, and Gantt charts. 

ASA had issues with their identity and image, resulting in the need for total rebranding by LB&G. For the media portion, we developed a campaign of potential viral videos. Personally, I helped write, film, edit and even star in this series. This is The Aspiring Inspiration, the first in the series featuring LB&G member, Gina, as a pensive wanna-be art enthusiast.
