Alexandra completed her Bachelor of Science in Health & Wellness, Spanish minor, and Business Certificate at the University of Minnesota in 3.5 years. Now, Alexandra is in the process of applying to graduate school to become a licensed and certified physician assistant.
Her passion for the Miss America Organization begins with volunteer work. She has volunteered as a camp counselor at Camp Odayin – for kids with heart disease, Big Sister through Big Brothers Big Sisters, Girls on the Run coach, Meals on Wheels driver, and nursing aide at the University of Minnesota Medical Center. Proficient in Spanish, she spent 10 days serving underprivileged youth in Costa Rica. Alexandra has also invested time and effort into organizing large-scale service projects throughout the community. She organized a clothing drive which collected over 500 items, a fleece collection where the donations were tied into blankets for the patients at Children’s Hospital and Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare, and a drive collecting toys, games, books, and stuffed animals benefiting the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital kids at Gillette Children’s.
As Miss Chain of Lakes 2017, she has organized events, spoken to local communities, and coordinated kindness projects with various classrooms showing that we can change our world by performing simple acts of kindness. She believes that by encouraging and challenging people to demonstrate kindness, we can spread a contagious wave of selflessness through our community to counteract the pervasive negative messages present in our society.
