My name's Alexa Tanney.

I'm a 24-year-old living in New York City and much like every other college graduate with a bachelors degree and big dreams; I'm still trying to find my place in the world. After graduating from Queens College with my B.A. in Media Studies and Journalism, I went on to write for several growing publications and to date have over 1,000 articles published online. I'm currently in graduate school pursuing my Master's.

I thrive best in uncomfortable situations and wherever there's a Zeppelin album playing. Ambition runs through my system as rapid as my oxygen and I don't believe that failure is ever an option, no matter how many times I face plant. Satire is my forte, sarcasm is my religion and intellectual conversations get my juices flowing. 

I'm one of those people who believe that we're all given one gift, one talent, one skill that sets us apart from the rest of the world. For some people, it takes their entire life to find that one thing they're great at. For me, it has always been writing.
