With high hopes for the future, Alexandra is very ambitious and wants to be a classical pianist. Alexandra’s father is a classical music enthusiast and classical music has always been played in her home. Her favorite Classical Compositions are George Frideric Handel’s Coronation and Anthem No. 1 Zadok The Priest. She also LOVES Alicia Keys!
Alexandra has a 4.0 G.P.A. and was recently honored by Get Schooled and was featured in the Times Square Yearbook. The Times Square Yearbook is a digital Yearbook of 400 high school students who’ve made the promise to graduate via GetSchooled.com. In order to be considered, students had to explain how they intend to graduate from high school. Alexandra’s compelling story of Determination, Courage, Hard-Work and Ambition was selected from hundreds of entries.
She was notified at school by Hip-Hop Artist Diggy Simmons, the son of Joseph “Rev. Run” Simmons of Run DMC with a Congratulations Message of being accepted in The Times Square Yearbook!
On June 11th of this year Alexandra along with family, friends and peers were invited to Times Square in New York City for the unveiling of a Special Billboard with her picture on it! What a Great honor!
Alexandra recently entered the 2015 Graduate for Más Teen Scholar Competition where students are invited to promise to graduate high school and submit a video entry explaining who they are, why they believe they should win the competition, and how they could help inspire their peers to graduate.

If Alexandra could do one thing to make a Positive Impact on the world, she would start a foundation for less fortunate people that would focus on uplifting and empowering teens.
