Jessica Roy

Fondatrice de Yoga pour la fibromyalgie

Jessica Roy is 20 years old and a junior at New York University currently studying abroad in Paris until January 2009. She is co-founder of the blog <a href="http://jessandjoshtalk.blogspot.com/" rel="nofollow">Jess and Josh Talk About Stuff</a> and has appeared in <em>New York</em> Magazine's Daily Intelligencer, <em>02138 Magazine</em> and <em>The Gallatin Review</em>. She is a media blogger for NYU's online news source, <em><a href="http://www.nyulocal.com/" rel="nofollow">NYU Local</a></em>. <br> <br> Jessica was raised in Philadelphia, where she interned with Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz, as well as <em>The Philadelphia Inquirer</em>. She has wanted to write professionally ever since penning her first story on a piece of construction paper entitled "Caroline's Chemistry Set." In the story, a little girl saves a plane from crashing by somehow pouring chlorine into the engine. This is ironic for two reasons: 1) Chemistry sets are in no way allowed on planes, and 2) Jessica is terrified of flying. <br> <br> Jessica will return to New York in January to finish her degree at NYU and figure out if she really wants to pay for grad school.
