Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Alanie has always believed that she is destined to do more than her humble background. She naturally sought out knowledge to challenge herself to become someone that can make an impact. During her time at Palisades Charter High School—outside of diving into her studies—Alanie promoted unity on campus through her involvement in the Black Student Union, the Body Positivity Club, and the PCHS Yearbook. It was then when she decided to pursue higher education as a first-generation Marketing student at San Diego State University. Within the last three years, Alanie did not hesitate to join numerous organizations (including Delta Sigma Pi's Gamma Pi Pledge Class) to continue her advocacy for equality, creativity, and community. Some of her leadership includes A.S. Student Diversity Commission Representative (2020-Present), Vice President of Marketing for the Residence Hall Association (2019-2020), College of Business Council Representative for the Black Business Society (2019-2020), and Sister-to-Sister Liaison of the Student African American Sisterhood (2018-2020). In the future, Alanie hopes to diversify and elevate mainstream media as she continues to develop her career in Public Relations and Branding Strategy.
