After much deliberation, Ariana decided to stop pursuing a career in the medical field during her sophomore year of college and chose to pursue her true passion: writing. Coming from a family of medical professionals, the decision was difficult to make, but she has no doubts or regrets about choosing print journalism and creative writing. Ariana is working on her sixth short story and second poetry collection, while writing articles for the University of Nevada Las Vegas’s weekly newspaper, The UNLV Scarlet & Gray Free Press where she is also the chief copy editor. Ariana was also the editor-in-chief of The Odyssey Online‘s UNLV community.

Ariana is an avid reader, eager traveler, amateur photographer, crafter, and fashion and food enthusiast. She currently resides in Las Vegas, Nevada.
