Style Advisor: Jessica Yarvin

avatar School: Thomas S. Wootton High School Hi I’m Jessica and I’m a senior at Wootton High School in Rockville, MD. After living in a small room in a rural Costa Rican village for nine days, a cabin with 42 girls for seven weeks, and across the hall from my crazy brother for 10 years, I believe that I have learned to make any room my own. I’m proud to admit that reading is one of my favorite hobbies, and yes, I have read the entire Harry Potter series in a weekend. I also love music and finding new bands to share with my friends. I’ve found that the easiest way to make an unfamiliar room feel like home is to simply blast some of my favorite tunes and sing along. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m just your average 17-year-old, who has dreams of being as funny as Tina Fey, as intelligent as Rory Gilmore, having friends who cook as well as Monica Geller, and a boyfriend as perfect as Seth Cohen. Have I mentioned my unhealthy addiction to television? Most importantly, I cannot wait for college and to team up with Dormify to decorate my dorm! In the meantime, be sure to follow me @yarvsy for a dose of my daily struggles and the occasional comedic quip.
