    Alana Unrest

    Alana Unrest is the name of my alter ego. She is everything I aspire to be. Alana means 'precious awakening' and Unrest refers to a state of discontent, of not being happy with the way things are. She stands for change & for awakening, and she will not rest until she gets there.
