Alana, a metro Detroit native, is a sophomore at Oberlin College, studying creative writing. She first worked with SEEN when she was a 2018 Young Changemaker for her family’s nonprofit, KidsRead2Kids. Now, she is beyond excited to work behind-the-scenes as a contributing writer. She loves writing stories that lift up and inspire others. When she’s not writing, Alana loves reading YA novels, watching romcoms and spending time with family and friends.
