Headshot of Alana Edwards

I am a public relations and political science double-major at UNC-Chapel Hill with proven experience in communications and political organizing. I will graduate in December 2019 and intend to work in Raleigh, NC or Washington, DC. My interest lies in leveraging digital platforms to promote political engagement and drive progressive change.

I currently serve as President of UNC Young Democrats and formerly as Vice President, Treasurer and Membership Director. I am also the Communications Assistant at UNC’s Odum Institute for Research in Social Science. Last summer, I worked in downtown Raleigh as a Communications and Public Affairs Intern for the North Carolina Department of Commerce in the Office of the Secretary.

Outside of my academic and political endeavors, I enjoy listening to podcasts, visiting museums, exploring music and spending time with friends and family.
