I first discovered that I had a talent and creativity for writing when I began writing poems and stories at only age 7. One of the poems I wrote, called "The Brightness of the Dark Hallway", was published in the book “Forever Spoken” International Library of Poetry (Compilation 2007, Page 1). In high school, I was involved in choir, glee, and journalism. In my free time, I began writing and creating song lyrics, stories, art designs, and even composed a song on the piano for a novel I had been working on. I knew I had to continue exploring my creativity so that I could share my passion with others.
In Fall 2018, I graduated from Purdue University Northwest majoring in Communications-Advertising. It was there that I learned what it really takes to run a business by using an integrated marketing communications plan. I took classes like Multi-Track Music Recording, Social Media and Public Relations, Advertising, Photography, Cinematography, Journalism, Literature, Writing and so on. I wanted to take it one step further and use what I learned in order to run AlionaMedia.com and begin my career as an independent artist and entertainer.
Creating and recording music is my passion and I hope that others will enjoy it just as much as I do. Over time, my writing skills have gotten better, and I want to be able to articulate messages to people that touch their hearts in one way or another. The messages behind my songs may vary for each person because everyone is different. I just want you to know there are no right or wrongs in your own values and opinions. We all carry our different experiences. I hope to make many great, and inspirational connections along the way.
Growing up, I felt a lot like I was never in the know about issues that arise in our society and the news. Issues like healthcare, welfare, taxes, gun control and gun laws, and even student debt were and sometimes still are very complicated to understand. I am currently in my 20's and I still feel like I need help to better understand these issues. That is why I volunteer for Resolve Foundation, a new nonprofit organization whose ultimate goal is to promote and support youth civic engagement and their participation in nation-wide discussion forums on important subjects that effect our lives and shape our future.
