Alexia graduated from Columbia University with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. There, her studies affirmed her passion for children’s mental health and socioemotional development. During her undergraduate career, Alexia worked as an Atlantic Fellow for Racial Equity at the Center for Justice, a network of leaders dedicated to advancing racial equity and justice. As a research assistant on a pilot program that brought together local youth and representatives from prominent city agencies, she explored the effects of youth-adult partnership on positive youth development and community connectedness. This experience further piqued Alexia’s interest in helping young people develop the strengths and skills they need to overcome social, emotional and behavioral challenges. Her goal is to obtain a combined school and clinical psychology degree.
