Hello! My name is Alayna Licardi. I’m a senior at FIU majoring in PRAAC and minoring in Business Communication.
Over the course of my degree, I have lived in 5 cities. I was moving around for modeling which eventually led me to the career I have now which is working for a cosmetics line. I currently do influencer outreach, campaign planning, and branding for Pseudo Labs. Besides fashion and beauty, my interests include cooking, skateboarding, yoga and going out to eat with friends.
Thank you for this opportunity and I’m really looking forward to finding some great results for Dorkaholics!

Hi! My name is Gabriela Riveros and I am a senior at FIU majoring in PRAAC with a minor in Hospitality.
I take my classes online because I love traveling. In the past 2 years, I have lived on a cruise at sea, Thailand, Hawaii, & Argentina as well as traveling to neighbor countries surrounding those places. Some of my other passions include health, the environment, spirituality, and the arts. I have my own business of reusable customized water bottles in hopes of helping the world become greener one step at a time.
I am so excited to be a part of the Dorkaholics team!
My name is Riley Walman and I’m an FIU senior majoring in Public Relations, Advertising, & Applied Communications. This fall I’m excited to be attending NCSU for my Masters in Graphic Design! I currently do web administration, SEO, and some marketing for a tutoring company. I also free-lance graphic design and web design, plus I create on the side at rileyvahlman.com.
I used to cosplay heavily and attend over ten conventions a year, but I’ve gone entirely silent on social media for the past year and a half to focus on finishing my degree and finding my career. I still enjoy anime unhealthily, and recently re-watched the original Evangelion series in anticipation of the final…and delayed…Rebuild movie. I’ve also binged a few manga in my time, including following Naruto for almost a decade just because it was my first arguably “real” anime.
