Tess Dorman



Hi, my name is Tess Dorman and I’m super-excited to be a part of the Life staff this year! Besides newspaper, I’m involved in SODA, TRY, Lean On Me, band and LM Democrats. In my free time, I like to hang out with my friends and family, watch Netflix, be outdoors and listen to music. My favorite place in the world is Sanibel, Florida; it’s so beautiful. One of the areas I’m most passionate about is politics. I spent a good deal of time this summer and into the fall volunteering for the Abby Finkenauer Campaign for Congress, so you can thank me for our newly elected Congresswoman. Being politically active gives me a sense of self-worth, it feels good to fight for my beliefs and let my voice be heard. That’s why I like writing, too, especially features. I have the freedom to write about any topic that I care about. I’ve grown up surrounded by journalism and the news, both of my parents are journalists. My dad is the Editorial Page Editor at the Gazette, so I guess the newspaper is in my blood. I can’t wait to be a part of a newspaper myself, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year as Feature Editor has in store for me!
