Alyssa Key is a recent graduate of the MLIS program at San Jose State University as of May 2021. After completing her undergraduate degree in Sociology at California State University, Northridge in May 2018 after seven years of continuous work, she took some time to figure out her next steps; which ultimately led her to SJSU. Having taken an interdisciplinary approach to her undergraduate studies, she loves how the MLIS curriculum drew from various subjects simultaneously and allowed her to apply her wide-ranging academic interests to a fulfilling career path, like public and academic librarianship. Also, being the avid reader she is, books have always been a constant in her life. So, she is excited to pursue that love professionally. Outside of school and reading, she enjoys writing, photography, listening to and expanding her music library, watching television, spending time with her family, friends, and pets, traveling, and completing creative projects. HLS was her first
contributing writer position.
