Fulltime reporter for El Sentinel, the Spanish language weekly of the Orlando Sentinel. Since her arrival to the paper in 2007 she has written stories about community trends, health, politics, immigration, cultural events, NASA and even sports. Also writes for the Orlando Sentinel and the Hispanic affairs blog Hispanosphere.
Alsy learned to read words and music sheets at the same time. She decided to go to journalism school in an effort to quench her curiosity of the world, but it only made her thirstier. After completing her BA in communications from the University of Puerto Rico, she crossed the ocean to study French culture in La Sorbonne and then completed a MS in investigative reporting from Florida International University. Her first job in journalism was as a TV and radio producer. She has worked in print and online journalism for the past five years, reporting on health, communities and Hispanic affairs.
When she’s not reporting Alsy likes to get lost in books written in Español, English and Français; checks travel deals; catches a foreign film; plays the guitar; eats tapas and then works them off in spinning class. Whenever she can’t make it to the Kennedy Space Center, she enjoys watching the shuttle launches from the Sentinel roof.
