Alexandra Evans is a Berkeley, Calif. native currently pursuing her B.S. in Journalism at Boston University. She has a primary interest in feature writing, biography writing and profiling, though her experience spans across several journalism platforms (print, online, broadcast), and writing styles (hard news, feature, editorial, sports recaps, profiles, website biographies) on both ends of the United States. Alexandra commenced her journalism career by joining the staff of the Laney College (Oakland, Calif.) student-run newspaper, The Laney Tower, in September 2016. Her first published article focused on a stem cell researcher at the University of California, San Francisco. Alexandra then wanted to explore coverage areas outside of her academic environment, securing a one-year internship with San Francisco News in November 2016. In February 2017, she began writing for its Beverly Hills-based sister publication, Canyon News. In June 2017, Alexandra attended her first professional sports event: an Oakland Athletics event honoring the late All-Star pitcher, Jim “Catfish” Hunter. Through September 2017, she wrote feature stories, game recaps, and published player interviews for the San Jose Sharks, including NHL veteran and future hall-of-famer Joe Thornton. From October to December, she covered the Sharks’ American Hockey League affiliate: the San Jose Barracuda. Alexandra joined the San Francisco-based publication Sports Radio Service in November 2017. She continued to cover the Barracuda through December 2017 and Stanford University Men’s Basketball through the 2017-2018 NCAA regular season; her work at Stanford also included podcasts. She was also one of Sports Radio Service's main beat reporters for the San Jose Earthquakes for the 2018 MLS season. After transferring to BU in September 2018, Alexandra became exposed to broadcast journalism through the student-run station WTBU Sports. Among fellow student beat reporters, she focused on Terrier Women's Ice Hockey coverage, which included weekly radio talk shows, color commentary and an appearance on the Patriot League Network. Her love for music prompted her to focus on Boston's lively music scene for future articles. In writing a musician profile and feature story on music trends for her news writing course at BU, she met and interviewed several professional Boston-based solo artists and band members of different musical backgrounds and genres. An originally-established country-pop artist, Alexandra hopes to integrate music into her long-term communications-focused career.
