Alexa is an undergraduate at American University in the honors program and is pursuing a degree from its School of Communication. Alexa has always had a passion for live performance, but her first love was writing. She had an opportunity to pursue both arts as a member of her high school's theater critic team. This led to an opportunity to participate in a program co-sponsored by the Walnut Street Theatre and the Philadelphia Inquirer in which high school students attended and submitted reviews for professional shows. Alexa's review was selected for publication in the Inquirer. In her senior year, she earned the Mark Drucker Internship at KYW Newsradio in Philadelphia and works there as a Desk Assistant when she is home from school. Alexa writes for American University publications like American Way of Life Magazine.
