Jessica Hutt is a sixteen-year-old writer and blogger from New Jersey. She is the assistant editor of her school’s current events magazine, and has a personal blog entitled Jess for Success.

In addition, Jessica has been trained as a writer by the School of the New York Times and New York University Pre College. She enjoys writing for online magazines Balter Monthly and Redefy, a for-teens, by-teens nonprofit fighting stereotypes and promoting positive perspectives.

Frustrated by the stigma surrounding mental illness and the lack of available resources for struggling youth, Jessica became involved with Tangible Movement. She is the editor in chief of Tangible Movement, and creates content for the blog. With the help of  Tangible Movement, Jessica hopes to be the generation to erase the taboo of mental illness, and to provide aid to young adults struggling with substance abuse, depression, identity issues, and more.
