Hello! My name is Alejandro Melgar, and I am a student at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) and I’m enrolled in the journalism program. I used to by an active member of the fitness community as a personal trainer and boxing instructor, but I made some changes in my life and have delved back into writing after rediscovering my joy for it.

I hope to continue exploring this medium in various ways, whether through journalism as my current schooling suggests, or through fiction writing, another form of writing I have been reacquainting myself with. Feel free to read more!

My portfolio has SAIT projects from past semesters (ongoing), and projects that have been untaken during that time. They consist of written work, photo essays, and a magazine and media kit.

Blog Entries

My personal blog that contains stories and personal anecdotes, personal opinion pieces, and fitness/boxing entries. There are also entries that speak to health and wellness when it comes to mindset and mental health.

Photo Gallery

While photography isn’t my forte, it is something I have interest in and have studied as a journalism student. If I can, I will go on location to shoot various events and caption them afterwards.
