Alexandra (Lexi) graduated from Florida Southern College with a bachelors of science in Political Science and a self-designed interdisciplinary second major in Social Justice with minors in Pre-law, Communication, and English. During undergrad, Lexi held multiple leadership positions in organizations on campus such as the Student Government Association and Poetry Club. For Lexi's Fulbright, she will be completing a one year masters degree in Southeast European Studies at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. The programs interdisciplinary nature attracted Lexi, because it allowed her to continue her own interdisciplinary approach to her academics, especially considering that the program is a mixture of Politics, History, and Economics. Lexi hopes to complete a masters thesis on Immigration policy (and human rights related issues) in the region. Then, she hopes to complete a comparative analysis of the research when she return's to the United States upon enrollment in a Political Science Ph.D. program (with focuses in Comparative Politics and Political Theory). Regional experience in Southeast Europe will be instrumental for comparative analysis (of different democracies such as the United States) which Lexi finds important in order to develop solutions to social and economic problems. Lexi wants to develop a career doing research on social issues that can be addressed through public policy. Through her research, she hopes to propose and/or advocate for policy change that will have a positive impact, especially in fostering better representation and equality for marginalized groups under the law. Lexi is especially excited to be studying In Greece considering its history as the birthplace of democracy and its unique cultural (and historical) background. Lexi looks forward to forming relationships with other individuals who also have a passion for protecting human rights and developing a global perspective.
