Alexandra ReznikAlexandra Reznik is currently working towards an M.A. in English Literature at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA, where she is also a Teaching and Research Assistant. She earned her B.A. in English and Cultural Studies at Chatham University's Undergraduate College for Women. Alexandra's participation in Sigma Tau Delta includes serving as President of her undergraduate chapter. Over the past two years the Alpha Delta Lambda Chapter has won outstanding eastern sponsor, chapter, and service awards. She was also the recipient of a Sigma Tau Delta Senior Scholarship in 2011.

Alexandra is a New Yorker magazine and latte addict, literature and film deconstructionist, chocolate and Capote connoisseur with an acquired obsession of nineteenth century American culture and music. She hopes to continue her education by pursuing a Ph.D. in English. While Alexandra has contributed to the growth of Sigma Tau Delta on the Chatham and Duquesne campuses, she hopes to work with all Eastern chapters to utilize the vast resources that the international organization has to offer. There is always room for growth as her life philosophy is informed by Theodor Adorno's quote: "The highest form of morality is not to feel at home in one's home."
