Starting her first year on staff for The Accolade, sophomore Alexxa Berumen is eager to jump into her responsibilities as co-feature editor, along with her colleague Giselle Suastegui. After a year in Journalism 1, she quickly learned the requirements of balancing rigorous classes and her commitment to the paper and hopes to further her routine. This year she aims to develop her writing skills and learn how to work in various writing sections.

When not working for The Accolade, Berumen can be found working on her other amounts of over-piling homework, playing club volleyball or taking a much-needed break.
