Favorite Place

My favorite place is on the softball field—ideally, my home field at the University of Chicago. The friendships and memories I’ve made on softball fields throughout my life are immense. I’m forever thankful to the sport for providing me life skills, friends, mentors, and memories that will last a lifetime. Softball has already done so much for me over the past ten years. I can’t wait for what it has in store for me in the next three.

How did you first learn about EPIC-N?

I first learned about EPIC-N through interning for the Center on Wisconsin Strategy (COWS) where I was introduced to EPIC-N and the fantastic network it provides.

In what ways are you looking to engage or work with others either from within the EPIC Network or in general?

As someone involved in communications and outreach, I hope to introduce others to EPIC-Network and all that it provides. I hope to give every person and organization involved with EPIC-Network a greater than satisfactory experience.


Alina Yazek just finished her first year at the University of Chicago. She’s a student-athlete at the U of C participating on their softball team! Alina was born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin, where she will be spending the summer of 2021. During which, she is interning for COWS and is excited to be doing some work with EPIC-Network to help document the amazing work done by network members.
