After a year-long performing stint in Milan, Italy, Ali graduated with a Bachelor's of Music in Piano Performance at Utah State University in May 2014.
Forever a closet poet and journal writer, she decided to take the plunge and explore different mediums, with public radio finding a special place in her heart. To her, there has been nothing more satisfying than combining her two loves: music and writing. She is currently working as a freelance Arts and Culture reporter with UPR, as well as continuing performing and teaching as a collaborative and chamber pianist.
This December she will be applying to graduate school to pursue a masters degree in journalism, in attempts to satisfy her insatiable appetite for learning.
