Hi there! I’m Alessandra, but I go by Ali to make it easier for us all! I’m a current sophomore in the Diederich College of Communication studying public relations. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico—no I didn’t go to the beach every day (I know, what was I thinking?!?)—but I’m Italian and Ukrainian by blood. So basically, all of this means that I was raised to speak three languages and eat a lot of really yummy food. I have a passion for traveling and love to take pictures and make videos based on my findings. Wanna know how a girl from 2,000-plus miles away is able to call Marquette home? Watch my videos and find out!
I’m trilingual! I speak English, Spanish, and Italian.
So basically I have the best of both worlds and get to enjoy all the typical dishes of all three of the cultures I was raised around!
I love to be outdoors—you’ll find me soaking up all the sun I can get on those occasional nice and sunny Milwaukee days.
I wasn’t always this way! Living in Milwaukee has definitely made me realize that I never took for granted living on an island where it was hot and sunny year-round.
Since I was only 2 months old, I’ve been flying across continents, and I jump on every chance I’m presented to travel—it’s my favorite way to learn.
I came to Marquette my freshman year with nothing but two suitcases packed full of clothes that I couldn’t even wear out by October.
