Teresa Cotsirilos is a Berkeley native who may or may not have once declared her awkward love to Jonathan Franzen in a coffee shop. She has sold pirate supplies in San Francisco, ill-advisedly irritated soldiers in Jerusalem, and taught Sex Ed in rural Namibia with nothing but condoms, determination, and a large hand-drawn diagram. A Harvard graduate, she has written extensively for Salon.com, Let’s Go Travel Guides, and American Girl. She currently works as a web intern, journalist and producer at The Nation.
As politicians and pundits continue to agonize over what Occupy Wall Street really wants, those at Zuccotti Park are busy actually working toward their visions of what victory for the movement would look like.
