My name is Jess, I'm 21, and I live in Auckland, New Zealand. I'm currently studying Marketing and Management at AUT University. This blog is filled with things that I find interesting and inspiring; advertising, marketing, branding, social media, as well as the odd ramblings about my life and experiences as a business student. Enjoy!
