Alyssa grew up in a small town in northern Massachusetts, where she spent countless afternoons at local bookstores developing her love for reading and writing. In 2012, she went on to study English at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Unable to study abroad or do any traveling during her time at school, Alyssa didn’t waste any time planning her first solo trip to New York City upon graduation. After experiencing much of what the city had to offer, she couldn’t wait to continue seeing the world. Just a year later, she set off to Paris and London for her next adventure. In Europe, she was able to cross quite a bit off her bucket list—including eating fresh croissants by the Eiffel Tower and making new friends at a Bloomsbury pub. She hopes to continue exploring Europe in the coming years. In her free time, Alyssa enjoys listening to true crime podcasts, meeting up with friends at Boston breweries, and reading by the fire next to her cat, Rosie.
