Alexandra Evans is a Berkeley, California native who transferred to BU from Berkeley City College in Fall 2018 to complete her B.S. in Journalism. Writing has been one of her strong suits since she was young, and since her first article was published in September 2016, Alexandra discovered that her strong, outgoing, and sociable personality allowed her to conduct interviews with poise and high levels of enthusiasm and humor.
Alexandra’s father introduced her to professional and collegiate sports in her single-digit age years. Since, she has grown to appreciate all of them, though NHL hockey has stolen her heart. With a year-long background in print and online sports journalism (and a couple podcasts here and there) in Northern California, Alexandra is excited to gain more broadcast experience, work alongside those who share a passion for sports, and bring her West Coast fandom to WTBU Sports.
