The short version:  Tess Stuber grew up in Columbus, Ohio and moved to Toronto in 2018 to attend Ryerson University School of Journalism. She is passionate about inspiring change and believes that the first step to a better world is a well-informed public. This is what inspires her love for journalism.  This site is a platform for her work as well as her personal endeavors as she explores all that life has to offer her.


The long version:   Welcome to my blog!

I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio and I have the luxury of having two families there. I have a family of five and a family of seven. My family of five consists of myself, my older brother, my dad, my stepmom, and our fluffy Australian-labradoodle. My family of seven consists again of myself and my older brother, as well as my younger half-sister, my mom, my stepdad, our two very opinionated mutts.

I graduated from Bexley High School in 2018. My high school experience started out a little rough, but I grew to enjoy it as I discovered who I was and who I was becoming. High school is where I found my passion for writing, political activism, and well, being queer. It sounds funny when you say it, but being queer has entered me into a community of some of the most loving people on this planet, and for that, I am forever grateful.

In 2017, I got my first gig as an intern for a local, online newspaper called Columbus Navigator. Navigator has taught me more than I could have imagined about the world of media, working with a team, exploring my passions, networking, and so much more.

In the fall of 2018, I packed up both my bedrooms and moved to Toronto, Canada to attend Ryerson University School of Journalism. Toronto is an incredible city with endless opportunities. I have been here since August of 2018 and have only begun to dip my toes in.

The world that awaits me is so vast and so grand, my only hope is that I’ll absorb as much of it as I can.
