Alice means pushing myself to the next level. She embodies all the things I love about myself and womanhood, but she pushes the bounds, forcing me to challenge myself and become better everyday. She is the ultimate role model.
Alice is every woman. She is every skin tone, every shape, every voice and every idea. When she walks into a room, she makes a grand entrance. When she departs, she leaves each place better than how she found it. She graces this world with love, color and sound, and harnesses the power of words and images to ignite a celebration of collegiate womanhood, in all its layered, diverse complexity.
To me, Alice is a way for women to voice their perspective. At UA and in Alabama in general, there are so many women with completely different lives. We all have our own individual experiences, but it’s so easy to get stuck in our own world and disregard everyone else. Alice is a platform for every woman to share their point of view.
Alice is just a huge ol’ pile of everything good! Being a part of something that gives so many girls a place to create is kind of the best, I’m not sure if I’ll ever be a part of anything this special.

Alice is preparing me for the future alongside girls who want to encourage me in all that I do! They want me to succeed and will help me get to where I want to go.
Alice is the embodiment of every woman and everyone who reads the magazine will find a part of themselves within the pages. There are so many different aspects to being a strong woman and Alice is there to support each woman in their decisions and bring out their individual strengths.

To me, Alice has always been a strong, intelligent woman who’s confident in who she is. She cares deeply about the people around her and fights for what she believes in, whether that’s human rights or an absolutely amazing pair of shoes. And through Alice, I’ve learned how to become more confident in myself. She’s taught me how to stand my ground and embrace every part of me, no matter what other people may think. I hope that Alice’s readers see that in her and that maybe, just maybe, she can teach them this lesson, too.
When I think of Alice and everything it entails, I can’t help but have flashbacks to my childhood when I would play dress up and put together outfits for my friends and I. To me, Alice is the little girl inside us all, fearless and bold in her choices and not afraid to march to the beat of her own drum. Thanks to Alice the little girl in me didn’t have to grow up too much.
As the fashion editor for Alice, I have the unique opportunity to provide readers with a new perspective on fashion. Fashion is a $1.2 trillion global industry and employs 1.9 million people in the United States alone. Though often portrayed as materialistic and frivolous, the fashion industry is actually a dynamic catalyst for economic, social, cultural, political, and even environmental change on a global scale. To be able to provide this context to our readers, to take fashion deeper than “tips and tricks,” is one of the most interesting opportunities I’ve ever had as a journalist and a writer. I can’t thank Alice enough for setting such a high standard for thoughtful work that challenges me and my team with every issue we produce.
Alice is everyone & no one in particular. When you flip through the pages or scroll online, we want you to be able to see yourself, and who you to aspire to become, within her words & pictures. Alice is cool, she’s inclusive, & most importantly, she’s here to spread creativity & positivity in a world where it’s so easy to focus on the negatives.
Alice has given me everything I could ask for as a journalist in college. Not only have I gained valuable experience as a writer now an editor, but I’ve been apart of a team of women who are some of the best content creators I’ve seen. I’m in love with every aspect of the production of Alice from the graphic designers to photographers. It’s truly innovative and everything I want to read as a college woman.
To me, Alice is the college woman that is always surprising people. She’ll gush about the newest fashion trends for the Spring but make sure people are aware of sex trafficking. Alice can tell you all about the female game-changers in politics but also which TV shows to binge on a cold Winter night. She is someone that is never to be underestimated and is always changing. Alice is going to make her mark on this world.
