DANIEL BLUE: MEET ALISON COFFEY >>>

 Tacomafilesart Alison Coffey moved to Tacoma when she was 12. She attended the School of the Arts, from which she graduated last year and is preparing for her second year at Tufts University in Boston, Mass.

Alison is extremely intelligent, and the first bits of our acquaintance were spent musing over a crossword puzzle, which we were too stubborn to put down until it was completed, Internet cheating or not. My input was primarily to pencil in the answers that she was somehow able to pluck from the meta-consciousness square by square. 

She has been gentle and soft spoken with a consistency that cannot be pretended, her nature is simply to be very collected and consciously pleasant.

Alison is interested in non governmental organizations and rural to urban migration worldwide. She explained to me that over half of the world's population live in urban settings and that number is rising all the time. We talked for a bit about forced evictions, which has the softer term of "resettlement."

Her care for people is clear, and her education will allow her to care with purpose. Most days she is dutifully studying at the BW or managing to conquer the crossword with her psychic prowess.
