Ariana Alanis

Academic Coaching Associate
Senn High School

After helping establish the First-generation Network at Denison University, Ariana realized she enjoyed working with students with a similar background and helping them navigate the college experience. Ariana has always had the interest in giving back to her community so she was excited when she was offered the opportunity to be a Schuler Scholar Coach at Nicholas Senn Highschool, Ariana's alma mater.

In her free time, Ariana enjoys going out to restaurants, coffee shops and spending time with friends and family.

"The ability to read, write, and analyze; the confidence to stand up and demand justice and equality; the qualifications and connections to get your foot in that door and take your seat at that table -- all of that starts with education." - Michelle Obama
