Alyssa Brodie

Hi! My name is Alyssa Brodie and I am a first year student at Wilfrid Laurier! I'm studying criminology in hopes of becoming a criminal lawyer. I’m currently living in Brantford, so to any fellow readers who may also be living in Brantford, I love making new friends! I applied to be a writer for the Sputnik because writing is a way for me to express how I feel when I can't or won't, share my feelings with someone I trust. I can't wait to see what my future on the Sputnik team holds for me. Happy reading! :)
