Hi! My name is Alana Rucks and I’m currently a senior at the University of Wisconsin-Stout studying Professional Communication and Emerging Media. Right now, I’m in a Writing for Technical Manuals class where we’re learning how to write instructions and how-to documents.
I have had some technical writing experience at a previous internship where I helped create and write installation guides for sinks, faucets, toilets, baths, etc. I’m excited to expand my technical writing portfolio by completing an iFixIt project!
Most of my repair experience was at my previous internship, along with some small DIY projects at home.
Aside from going to classes, I work in Stout’s Usability Testing Lab as a Lab Assistant. I also love being outside, taking pictures, watching new movies/shows, and visiting the humane society.
