Alanna Nuñez is a writer and editor who lives in Brooklyn. She's worked in print, radio, and web, and has written about everything from Kate Middleton's fashion choices to the use of pesticides in rural Argentina. A recent graduate of the University of Missouri (go Tigers!), she's currently enjoying her time as the associate web editor at SHAPE mag, as well as writing about all things health- and lifestyle-related for various publications.
