Hi! I’m Tori Szczesniak and I’m a junior double-majoring in Film Studies + Environmental Policy. I have my own professional photography business and I love anything that has to do with art + design: interiors, fashion, graphic design, sustainability, diy, etc.
I’m excited about Japanese culture and “gross national cool” because I have interests in Japanese film, fashion, and technology. I grew up on Miyazaki films, and one of my favorite films today is Departures (Okuribito) directed by Yôjirô Takita. I am curious about Japan’s emerging role in our global economy, its impact on our artistic world, and its environmental initiatives.
