Blanly Rodriguez is a writer for Her Campus. New to the magazine, Blanly is excited to be a part of the kind, determined, and fun Her Campus family. She is also eager to better her writing skills while researching engaging topics that apply to women across all Her Campus campuses.
Beyond Her Campus, Blanly is a first-year at the University of Virginia on the pre-law track. In the past, Blanly has written for an international non-profit working to increase foreign aid for countries whose large percentage of citizens live below the poverty line. She has interviewed incredible women warriors such as the founder of Lydia House International, Margo Rees, and the founder of ICAP at Columbia University, Wafaa El-Sadr. She has been writing ever since fifth grade and even wrote an unpublished book she swears will stay locked in the files until the day she dies.
When she's not writing, Blanly enjoys walking outside while listening to music, hanging out with friends, and reading. She enjoys reading silly romantic comedies or novels exploring topics on race and gender. Her favorite musicians are Beyoncé and BTS, but she loves listening to all types of music. She says her fatal flaws include spending money on sweet treats and buying album books.
