As a part of Medill's Journalism Residency program, Alani is in New York City for the duration of winter quarter, 2018. While at Bustle, she is an intern at the office, working on mostly their entertainment vertical, while also sticking with writing for Elite Daily (a BDG Media publication). As she is fiercely obsessed with television, music, movies, and any other fictional medium, that's what she loves to write about.

Starting in August, 2018, Alani has been hired as a staff writer for the Entertainment News vertical of Bustle.com. She now reports on breaking news in the entertainment industry and does other coverage or the site.
