SOCIAL MEDIA EDITOR
It's my goal to read at least 50 books a year.
Alia Sharif is the Social Media Editor at Circa out of the DC bureau. She was born in New York City and raised in Northern Virginia. Before she could even write a sentence, Alia was a regular presence in a national newsroom. From the day she helped put out a special edition of The New York Times during Take Your Daughter to Work Day, she knew that she wanted to be in the news business.
Before coming to Circa, Alia had the incredible opportunity to work on the web and mobile desk with Agence France Presse (AFP). It was an amazing position where she learned a lot, mais ne lui demande pas de parler français.
Alia is a very proud Wahoo with a Bachelor’s in Foreign Affairs and Media Studies from the University of Virginia. She firmly believes Tony Bennett is the best college basketball coach and a true gentleman. Alia has a passion for travel and plans to continue filling her passport with exotic locations across the globe.
