Alexis has been a member of the 49rs STEM Leadership Institute for six years, and has grown to be a hard-working and passionate student. She has explored different fields through FIRST Competitions, Maker Faires, Synopsis Science Fairs and more. Along with her advanced courses at Santa Clara High School, she has pursued her passions for biology and medicine with outside coursework in anatomy and physiology, and also shadowing medical professionals. She hopes to continue her passions in these fields and utilize her strengths in leadership, communication, and compassion to pursue a career in nursing.
In addition, Alexis works alongside other SLI students in hopes of leaving a lasting impact on the SLI program through the Student Leadership Committee, where they have successfully created and taught hours of CAD and coding lessons to younger cohorts. Outside of school, Alexis enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and playing music. She has been playing the piano and singing since her childhood and has recently taken up the guitar, which she loves.
