Hello,

a bit about me:

alexandriasands

My name is Alex. I’m a journalist and senior at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where I am majoring in communication studies with a concentration in mass media and a double minor in journalism and English.

Throughout high school, I developed a passion for photographing, interviewing and writing people’s stories as an editor on yearbook and newspaper. When I started college, I joined the Niner Times, the student-run newspaper of UNC Charlotte. By sophomore year, I took on the role of news editor and was promoted to community editor my senior year.

My work has appeared in multiple publications, including The State Port Pilot, The Shelby Star, The Gaston Gazette, Creative Loafing, The Charlotte Business Journal and Charlotte magazine.
