Alexandria Rose Rizik is a writer and director, born and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona—where she was brought up by a large Armenian family. Her love for writing began when her aunt bought her a journal as a young child, telling her to write her a story and the rest is history. Her favorite part about writing is being able to write the ‘happily ever after’ that doesn’t always happen in real life. She received a degree in English from Arizona State University, contributing articles to publications such as TheBeautyBean.com and a community post to Buzz Feed. One of her latest projects is a short film that she wrote/directed titled, The Middle—accepted into Festival De Cannes’ 2018 Short Film Corner. She published her first children’s book, Chocolate Milk, in 2017 and expects to debut her first novel, 21 Questions, in 2019. Besides writing, Alexandria loves yoga, wine, and family time.
