Alexandra Cortese, Web Editor

Alexandra Cortese is a freshman majoring in Law & Society and minoring in English. Because of her longtime passion for legal studies, upon graduating John Jay, she plans to attend law school in New York City. Despite the multitude of clubs John Jay offers, Cortese believes only The John Jay Sentinel allows her to carry out her enjoyments, such as interdisciplinary research and writing. Her favorite book of all time is “Tess of the d’Urbervilles” by Thomas Hardy, because of its theme of resilience, which applies heavily in both her personal and school life. Cortese looks forward to serving as an editor for The Sentinel!
