Alexandria Rizik is a published writer, award-winning filmmaker, and mental health advocate born and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona — where she was brought up by a large Armenian family.
Her love for writing began when she was a young child and her aunt bought her a journal. She told Alexandria to write her a story and the rest is history. Her favorite part about writing is being able to write the happily ever after that doesn't always happen in real life.
She received a degree in English from Arizona State University and her published works include short stories, a children's book, and most recently, her book of poetry, "Words Written in the Dark."
She won best female director at London Independent Film Awards for her film, "Contentment", in 2017, which is now available on Amazon Prime.
Besides writing, Alexandria loves yoga, wine, and family time.
Her debut novel, "21 Questions" is coming Fall 2021.
Beautiful work!! Rizik bares her soul in the most intimate and thoughtful ways. Each poem captures the essence of what it means to be deeply in love, to lose that love, and to remember and search for hope and possibility again. This is a work of priceless and hard to capture emotion and meaning in beautiful thoughts!
