Allie Cooper

Allie Cooper spent her young impressionable years in Boise, Idaho and Portland, Oregon before she moved to Charlottesville, where she attended middle and high school. Allie became a “townie”-student hybrid when she decided to stay in the area and attend UVA. She is now in her fourth year, majoring in Global Development Studies and Spanish with a passion for education and human rights. Allie has always loved to write, and after learning about the muckrakers in her elementary school social studies classes, she dreamed of combining her interest in human rights and writing into a journalism career.
