My name is Alexandra (Alex) Hicks, and I am currently a student at the University of Oregon. I am studying Journalism, with a focus in Public Relations and advertising, although I have quite a bit of experience throughout the entire field (writing, editing, copy-editing, etc.). Currently, I am writing for the national award-winning campus magazine Flux, along with OR magazine, which, as of now, is the only collegiate iPad magazine in the country. It has also been gaining wide-spread attention as Adobe is using it as a platform to advertise their new tablet programs for publications. I have also written for all sections of the county newspaper in my hometown of Danville, California called The Valley Sentinel. I worked as an intern there, where my responsibilities included running their website, social media pages, and writing for all sections. I have also begun exploring digital media and design. I am a passionate, outgoing, driven, and often goofy person, who loves nothing more than storytelling.
