Alex comes from a University of Florida alumni family but found its big school culture challenging to navigate. On September 11th, 2001, he was reminded of the importance of service and decided to major in social work, which he pursued until he started his current profession. Alex credits his parents' decision to move overseas with his ability to spend time with all different people and recognize that his perspective isn't the only one. Growing up in foreign countries and seeing abject poverty instilled in him an appreciation for the many blessings he enjoys and a desire to serve in some way. What would Alex do if he had all the money in the world? What inspires and motivates him to do his thing? Let's join Alex's journey in this new episode of State Lobbying Heroes!
