Hello my dudes! My name is Tiffany Ferguson. I’m a 23 year old sharing my thoughts and life experiences. Here on Tiffanyferg, recently I’ve been working on my Internet Analysis series, where I research and share some commentary about online trends. I also occasionally talk about my experiences with college, traveling, study abroad, veganism, and other young-adult tings.
