She has studied French and Spanish, and will be studying for a semester in Seville, Spain soon. In the past summer, Alexandra spent three months in Italy as an Au Pair to teach English and learn about the Italian culture. She loves food, good discussion, and learning about culture-shocks. Alexandra aspires to travel for work and possibly take the Foreign Service Exam to become a Diplomat in the near future.
Nevertheless, at any given time, you can find Alexandra laughing and conversing with faculty and friends. Excellent communication is what she values the most. She hopes to better strengthen the communication between students and the administration on campus to improve the atmosphere at her university.
