Alyssa is a rising senior at the University of Pennsylvania. She is pursuing a major in English (with a concentration in Creative Writing) and a minor in Consumer Psychology. She is currently working over the summer as an Account Management intern in an advertising agency in Soho, NYC. Alyssa likes to do. Experience. Live. Take walks. Take chances. Her friends are amused by her, but she suspects that it's because she eats apple cores and shamelessly dances in all public spaces as long as music is playing. If she doesn't have frozen yogurt multiple times in a week, she cannot control her cravings and simply implodes. She can't sit in front of the TV for a long time without getting bored (unless tuned in to The Office), and she can't watch movies on a comfortable couch without falling asleep. She tends to strike up deep conversations with those sitting next to her on airplanes. She is obsessed with photography and Trader Joes. And she love to write.
