Alexia is the third of four siblings. As of now, she’s planning on majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Economics in college with an eye toward a career in the STEM field. Last summer, she participated in an internship with New York-Presbyterian Hospital where she got to practice those STEM skills, specifically in coding using Javascript. She simultaneously took a class at Bard College in literature. Her life philosophy is to be courageous and determined in the face of adversity.
