Class of 2024

Alisa is a Ukrainian-Canadian documentary filmmaker, writer and journalist. With a decade of experience in technical and commercial writing, as well as entrepreneurship,  she is now devoting her energies to becoming a documentary filmmaker. Her journalistic passions reflect her personal life experiences: immigration, mental health advocacy, history and politics, as well as music and storytelling as a force of learning and healing.

Currently based in Berkeley, Calif, Alisa has lived, worked, and studied on both sides of the Atlantic and traversed the globe extensively as both a private solo traveler and a corporate professional.

Her hobbies include discovering (and obsessing) over exciting new global artists and arguing with her cat Princess Grace Kelly.
