About Ashley Tedesco

Ashley is a senior at Fordham University studying journalism, creative writing and Jewish studies. She was raised Catholic and has only recently begun getting in touch with her "Jewish roots." She currently serves as editor of the Fordham Observer blog, The Observatory, but her claim to fame is still as a former Jewcy editorial intern.

When not ending up in every new Jewcy headquarters, she can be found hanging out in the RA on duty office, crocheting, or taking 8 hour naps in mid-afternoon.
