“¡Hola! My name is Alejandra but feel free to call me Ale. I was born and raised in northern Mexico, so my first language is Spanish. I went to LPCUWC in Hong Kong and among the many things I learned, Mandarin Chinese was one of them. Ever since I became part of COA in 2018, I have been a writing tutor. I am now a senior and my senior project revolves around the Writing Center and tutor training. Academically, I am concerned with comprehensive sexuality education as well as with equity, access, and quality in general education. My interests outside academics range from painting, anime, and Korean dramas to mental health, antiracism, and feminism. I live on-campus and share a room with my emotional support dog, Tita.”
