In the darkest times, hope is something you give yourself. That is the meaning of inner strength.

Alexa has spent her time developing her passions for leadership, life-sciences, and outreach throughout her six years in SLI. Surrounded by competitive peers, Alexa remained conscious of the disparities among students, leading her to found the Supporting Our Students (SOS) Club. As president, she set the foundation for and co-developed the Student Sanctuary website, which informs disadvantaged high schoolers about college, local opportunities, and student resources.
Alexa believes that the most meaningful use of her future would be to continue helping people in need. To satisfy this desire along with her interests in life-sciences, she indulged in medical-related activities by completing science and epidemiology courses at Mission College, joining Pre-Med Club, becoming the Director of Outreach and Social Media for Youth Leaders in Medicine (YLM), and becoming an ambassador for VaxTeen, helping to educate the youth about the importance of vaccines.
During the school year, Alexa acts as ASB Athletics Commissioner and enjoys playing for the basketball and volleyball team where she was Captain and MVP for both JV teams in 2019. At home, she spends her time building upon her hydroponic garden towers, learning more about herbal remedies, and tending to her indoor vegetable garden.
