Have you ever wondered who the people behind Living Fort Wayne are? Or maybe you’re curious about the different things our team does every day that make Living Fort Wayne the go-to destination for all the great things happening in our city. In this new spotlight series, we’ll be featuring a few of our amazing volunteers who will share a bit about their contributions to Living Fort Wayne and what they do outside of their volunteer work with us.
Today we are spotlighting one of Living Fort Wayne’s Contributing Writers, Alexandra Sauer!
What is your role with Living Fort Wayne and why did you decide to volunteer for our blog?
I grew up in Fort Wayne, but left the city after high school to explore the world. Thirteen years later, I’m back and am always looking for ways to become more involved in the community while learning about my new (again) city. Being a writer for LFW has been a huge help in getting to know Fort Wayne and meeting new people.
Tell us one thing about your life outside of Living Fort Wayne
I work as the Community Relations & Events Manager for our local non-profit organization, the Positive Resource Connection.
If you could live any other place in the world, besides Fort Wayne, where would you live and why?
I love Fort Wayne, but wouldn’t mind avoiding the harsh winters in a more temperate location near a beach.
If you had a friend coming in from out of town, what is the one can’t miss thing you would show them or do with them in Fort Wayne?
One thing? That’s a tough one! I think I would have my friend visit in the summer so we can take a long bike ride along the River Greenway stopping at The Deck for a drink, a picnic at Headwaters, and ending at a TinCaps baseball game. That’s one thing, right?
If you were going to karaoke tonight, what song would you sing?
