What is your name? Alexandra Dare Porter

Do you have any aliases? Nope. Well, sometimes my dad calls me Shorty. Not in the gangster sense, just in the sense that I am short relative to my brother, who is really tall. I’m actually not short at all.

Where are you from? Concord, NC

Where did you go for undergrad, and what did you study? UNC-Chapel Hill, Photojournalism

What is your position on the Cuba trip? Lead Photographer & Photo Editor

What does your personality bring to the team? I’m curious, excited and fun, and I know when to focus.

What was your reaction when you found out you were chosen to go to Cuba? Excitement and relief! Cuba was my number one choice because it’s almost impossible to go there. And I just wasn’t quite as interested in the other locations for various reasons. The fact that Cuba is generally off-limits makes this trip even more special. I know I will be able to bring back the most amazing photographs from this trip because I suspect Cuba will be a visually rich and vibrant environment with magical stories to tell.

What do you want to be when you grow up? I want to be a creator.
