I am always curious to try out new Toronto eats around campus, and I enjoy documenting those food adventures to share my delicious journeys with you! Follow me @my.eatz too


Hey I’m Paolina and I’m a second year Media Production student, with a love for food and travel. I literally spend all my free time downtown, trying new restaurants and checking out the latest events. My absolute favourite food (if it counts) is ice cream - name a place, I bet I’ve been there. Check out @paothebao on Instagram to see my food adventures.

Anita is a second year New Media student looking to find some direction for her future in RTA’s most eclectic program.

She can usually be found daydreaming about her next meal or lost in the folds of one of her carefully curated playlists.


Hello There! My name is Jake and I’m a second year Media Production student with a passion for hip-hop music. I’ve always been fascinated by lyricism, and I love to explore and analyze what I’m listening to. I spend most of my day wearing headphones, so I am excited to have the opportunity to write about hip-hop and introduce you to some amazing artists you’ve probably never heard of! Some of my interests outside of music include nature, sports, and fitness.

My name is Jessi. I’m a 3rd year New Media student. My favourite things to write about are movies and TV shows. I would like to believe that I have an amazing taste in movies, but I believe in a fine balance of garabage and cinema. I can quote word for word, The Mummy (the 1999 version, not the Tom Cruise version), but I can’t quote Citizen Kane word for word.

Sofia is a 2nd year Media Production student with a concentration in Digital Media. Although she comes from a background in prose and screenwriting, she's pivoted into interactive fiction and game design with a special interest in exploring horror. Her body of work ranges from the nightmarish and macabre to the cute and sweet, and you can find her work at Outside of games and writing, her interests include: crying over comics, watching movies that are so bad they're good, and consuming as much bubble tea as humanly possible.



My name is Gabe and I’m a 3rd-year RTA Sport Media student with a growing interest in writing and journalism. Besides my obvious passion for sports, I am extremely fascinated with good storytelling. Whether it comes from movies, music, comic books, or video games, to me, nothing is better than a fully immersive storytelling experience. You can expect the majority of my posts to revolve around these topics, including reviews, analysis, and personal anecdotes. I’m also hoping to write about streetwear, current Ryerson issues and events, as well as any other stories that I think are worth sharing with our readers!


Taylor is a third year Media Production student focusing on writing, directing and producing. At any given time, you’re most likely to find her drinking coffee on campus, hanging with her two feline friends, Nyx and Mac, or exploring the city’s art scene. Constantly amazed by all Toronto has to offer, she’ll be forever thankful for the unique experience of attending university in the heart of the city. There’s always something to see, and, admittedly, she’d choose an artisanal craft market over a party any day.
