Marcus Alvarez

Hello, my name is Marcus Alvarez! I am a junior digital communication and social media major, and I am ecstatic to be the Managing Editor at The Loquitur. I served as a reporter in my second year at Cabrini and I am ready to take on more responsibilities. I have not started an internship thus far; however, my newfound interest in journalism has skyrocketed a desire to pursue journalism as a career. As a journalist now and in the future, I hope to cover social justice issues and investigate problems facing my community. A fun fact about me is that I am is a dual citizen of the United States and Australia.
