Alyssa Olivo is a student at The College of Staten Island. She majors in Journalism and Political Science. To step out of her comfort zone she decided to study abroad for the summer in Thessaloniki, Greece where she will be attending the American College of Thessaloniki.

She chose to study in Greece because the country has been her main focus in her political science courses.

Born and raised in Queens, she has lived in Staten Island for more years than she can remember with her mother, older sister and niece.

Alyssa focuses on her academics and is on The Dean’s List with a GPA of 3.80. She hopes to attend American University in Washington, D.C. for graduate school, and one-day work for NY1.

Her love for writing began at a young age when she started dreaming about far away places and fictional animals that gave her nightmares. In June 2012, Alyssa completed CampNaNo in 12 days.

During Alyssa’s free time, she likes to go to the gym, cook Spanish food and try out DIY beauty projects that tend to lead to colorful disasters to her hair and hardwood floors. In August 2013, Alyssa will begin her senior year. She is currently searching for an internship in TV/Radio.
