<p>Hey all! My name is Alana and I&#39;m a Junior studying Sociology and Studio Arts at Occidental College. I play on the women&#39;s soccer team and DJ for my school&#39;s radio station, KOXY. I love exchanging music, taking and editing photos, staying current on streetwear trends, and eating authentic new foods! I&#39;m excited to share my perspective on the world and even more excited to learn about life in Granada!</p>
