"Dessi has been with TheWrap for over a year, during which she has carved out the niche beat of book-to-screen adaptations and targeting helpful search articles. Whenever she can, she will write about Taylor Swift. Before joining TheWrap in 2021, Dessi interned for the Arts News Desk at the Los Angeles Times. She also completed an internship at the South Bend Tribune for the ‘In the Bend’ section. Dessi fell in love with journalism in high school, where she started contributing to her school newspaper, The Eagle Eye. She also blogged about books for Santa Margarita Catholic High School’s library blog, “The Blueprint.” Dessi pursued journalism in college, writing for the Scene section of Notre Dame’s tri-campus student paper “The Observer,” and serving as news editor at “Scholastic” magazine."


Before joining TheWrap, Dessi graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2021 with a Bachelor of Arts degree comprised of her American Studies major and Journalism and Gender Studies minors. She graduated cum laude with honors in American Studies for writing her undergraduate senior thesis, titled, “The Myths of Taylor Swift: Race, Gender and Politics & Constructing ‘Miss Americana’.” The second chapter of her thesis, focused on gender, was published in “Americana,” the undergraduate research journal for the University of Notre Dame’s Department of American Studies.
