Eleanor Hardy

Meet the Writer

Eleanor is currently a junior at Christopher Newport University (CNU) where she is majoring in communication studies with a double minor in journalism and leadership studies. At CNU, she is a broadcaster for the athletics program and works with The Captain’s Log, the college newspaper. Eleanor is also a part of Greek life on campus as well as the President’s Leadership Program. She has always loved writing since journaling as a young child and eventually writing in school. Writing with Oyster Pointer is fun for her and a personal accomplishment. She interned with CBS 6 News in Richmond to gain some experience in the reporting side of journalism. Eleanor’s goal is to be a full-time reporter at a news agency in Richmond after graduation.

In my real life, this is what I do: I have a big family, so I spend a lot of time with them. I am constantly working, whether at my uncle’s restaurant, with CNU broadcasting or writing.

And this is what I do for fun: Go to the beach or spend time with my friends/family.

My favorite writer is: Colleen Hoover

My favorite book is: Verity by Colleen Hoover

When I have time for myself, I like to read. I usually read a book a week. 

My favorite place traveled is Nashville, Tennessee, even though I have done some international travel.

I would like to travel to: The Netherlands to see the Northern Lights.

Three people I most admire:

  1. My parents.
  2. My older cousins because I look up to them.
  3. My grandfather.

On my bucket list, I would like to

  1. Attend a Cowboys game in Dallas (I am a huge fan).
  2. Travel to Italy to see my family in Sicily.
  3. Learn how to surf.
