Alex von Briel

Alex von Briel is a junior studying English Literature with minors in Political Science, German, and Italian. She plans on attending law school after her undergrad. When she’s not reading or writing for an English class, you can find Alex relaxing at Schenley Plaza with her friends, while bumping Hippo Campus on her speaker or taking photos on her DSLR. She started portrait photography in 2018 and now shoots all types and styles of photography on her Nikon D5600.
