Born in Detroit but eventually moving to Auburn Hills, Alexis is a sophomore at Wayne State University with a double major in Sociology and Urban Studies. She graduated from Avondale High School, while there she was involved in many leadership building programs for young black males and disenfranchised youth. Some of those programs included Go, a non-profit organization started up by her mentor, and a book club for African American high school males. She also gave a TedxTalk at Oxford High School in 2016 that focused on empowering yourself and others. Following graduation, she was involved with the XQ Super School project though Go. Her goal after college is to work with the youth of Detroit in a way that will empower them to believe in themselves by equipping them with the necessary resources and skills. She is also on the Track and Field team at WSU.
