Alexis was in foster care for 21 years of age in Los Angeles.


Alexis’s time in care was rocky, with multiple placements including both kinship care as well as congregate care. About a year ago she was adopted by her foster family and is happy to have found permanence. 


She is beyond excited to serve on her state youth board and enjoys volunteering at her community Humane Society and at her church. She has also been recognized as a National Business Honors Society. Her desire is to help others just like she has been helped along the way.


Alexis is determined to, “rise above the obstacles I have faced and prove that bad situations don't prevent success”, and she sees herself going very far in the future. She plans to study international marketing so that she can see the world as she builds her career. 


"To do more for the world than the world does for you - that is success."

- Henry Ford
