3rd year English, 3rd year with The Cord. Since her first week with The Cord when she was assigned to the life section, Alanna knew that she was meant to be the Life Editor one day. Though confident as a writer, Alanna knew that she was not yet ready to make that jump to an editor position and worked as the Local/National Lead Reporter. Thankful for the experiences she gained, Alanna focused on her desire to be an editor and had her platform for life done by the beginning of January. Now her dream has come true and she couldn’t be any happier. Alanna also drinks too much coffee and is obsessed with Leonardo DiCaprio.
