Since the age of 14, Alex Hodges knew the music industry was something she had to be a part of. She tried her hand at writing songs and even singing in a band, but none of it seemed to work out for her, she said.
Hodges loved music, and made up for her lack of musical talent with passion.
She is pursuing her bachelor’s degree in liberal studies and music industry studies. She is set to graduate in the spring.
Growing up in Sacramento, Hodges said she remembers having to make long drives to get to the nearest music venues to attend concerts.

Students competed against each other in the 5th tournament of the USU’s Spring 2011 table tennis tournament on Tuesday in the Games Room.
Freshman Kyle Alcazar, 19, business marketing major, came out undefeated with a score of 5-0 against senior Benjamin Alyesh, 23, biology major.
“My whole family plays,” Alcazar said. “It’s a good hobby.”
Other students came out to compete against their friends and have fun.
“Most of my friends play so I like playing,” said freshman Max Chou, 18, business management major.
All participants in the tournament received a raffle ticket to enter for a chance to win a Flip video camera. Students played four rounds to elimination, and the top three winners received additional raffle tickets.
The next tournament will take place Monday, March 7 in the Games Room, with six more tournaments until the final championship game on Tuesday, April 26.
The winner of the raffle will be chosen at the final game.
