Hello, readers! My name is Alexis, and I’m a marketing intern for SAFTA this spring. I’m a Nutrition major at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and minoring in Business. I spend most of my time reading, cooking, or avoiding folding my laundry (working in retail will do that to you).
I was given the opportunity to intern for SAFTA last fall when I met Erin Elizabeth Smith in a public writing class I was taking. Since then I have been able to meet and get to know many of the fascinating people who are also a part of this organization. SAFTA has this magnetic presence in the community, and anyone who hears about the work that they’re doing is compelled to learn more and get involved. I’m so excited to have joined in their efforts, and you’ll find me writing for SAFTA to promote communication and education in Knoxville and the surrounding area.
Alexis Hamilton is a sophomore at the University of Tennessee and open to suggestions about what she should do with her life. She is currently reading eleven different books because she didn’t know which one to start first. She hates making her bed; however, she cleans and does laundry when she’s stressed. She is terribly afraid of snakes, but not of calories. Lastly, everything in this bio could be wrong. (Not the snake thing, though – they really do make her cry, and she has no control when it comes to Reese’s cups.)
