What is Berks Nostalgia?
My name is Alexa and I am a Berks born and raised Millennial. I created Berks Nostalgia in 2017 as a way of preserving all of the fascinating stories I had heard from previous generations about our hyper-local Berks County community.
Berks Nostalgia has become a fully comprehensive creative and educational experience, spanning mediums including writing, videography, photography and beyond. I am telling our story in a way you have never experienced it before.
Whether you prefer to process information through reading, interacting, watching or listening, Berks Nostalgia has something for you to enjoy. I use drone technology to capture our community as it exists now and my honed research skills to more fully tell its significance. I believe it is important to understand our past, its relation to the world we live in today, and how we can use that knowledge to navigate the future.
