Her Bobcat Story

Alexandra wouldn’t have predicted that the words, “Find your passion, diversify it,” would forever influence her story.

Sophomore Criminal Justice major and Religious Studies minor, Alexandra plans to graduate fall 2018-but that’s only one of Alexandra’s goals. She will become a U.S. Supreme Court Justice.

When considering colleges, Alexandra wanted to live somewhere new and different. She discovered Lees-McRae and wasted no time visiting and falling in love. “It felt natural,” she said.

Growing up, Alexandra learned to defy stereotypes that would go against a young, African-American woman.

Joining the law would be her best fight.

“I want to make as much influence in the world as possible,” she said.

Before becoming a justice, Alexandra will join the Winston-Salem Police Academy before working in child assault and violence cases

If anyone can do it, Alexandra can.
