Provide low-income communities financial information to aid students on their journey to college.
As a first-generation college student, Alexis strives to be an inspiring role model to her younger brothers and broader community. She is a recipient of the Waukegan Proud Award, in recognition of academic excellence and leadership in the city. As swimming co-captain, environmental club officer, and Girls Who Code co-leader, Alexis is not afraid to take initiative. When she realized the school water fountains were making her sick, Alexis led a fundraising campaign to update the water filtration system. With the help of a matching gift from Verizon, Alexis was able to ensure every student had access to safe drinking water at school.
With a concentration in Economics and Finance, Alexis is determined to see the people of Waukegan thrive financially. After graduation she aspires to be a financial advisor to empower her community members to budget, invest, and successfully manage personal finances.
