Alexa was born and raised in the city of Merced, California. Growing up from an immigrant family and having the majority of her friends come from the same background, she felt the struggles and injustices that many immigrants suffered. Alexa knew from a very young age that she wanted to be the helping hand. In high school she took Spanish Honors knowing that mastering her first language would one day pay off.
Alexa is currently working on her Administration of Justice degree & comes to Social Justice Collaborative with great excitement and joy to help those in need.
