Meet Our Scholars
Virginia Commonwealth University
Alexis grew up in a military family moving around a lot and being generally surrounded by change. This led to them to be a very adaptable person though, unfortunately, this meant experiencing different cultural mindsets from very liberal to very conservative. Each place taught her something new about the world and she saw how queer people are treated all over the world, which gave her more reasons to be interested in the mental health field. Alexis hopes to take their diverse experiences and intersectionalities with them to expand the minds of everyone they come across professionally as well as in other areas of life.
