Alicia McElhaney

University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA

Though I was born and raised in a suburb of Pittsburgh, Pa., I currently call Washington, D.C. and the University of Maryland my home. I'm studying journalism and I hope to eventually become a reporter covering health and wellness or breaking news. I love to write, but I joke that I am not creative enough to write fiction, which is what landed me in journalism. In my free time, I teach fitness classes, tap dance, DJ a radio show and spend time exploring the city. I enjoy advocating for eating disorder awareness and try to promote positive body image in my writing and in my teaching as a fitness instructor.
