Alexandria Marsicovetere is a current senior at Davidson College in the state of North Carolina in the US, originally from Brooklyn, New York but currently residing in Indian Land, South Carolina. She is majoring in Hispanic Studies and minoring in Educational Studies. Alex hopes to pursue a career in law upon graduation. She is currently a Lead Senior Admission Fellow at Davidson College. In that capacity, Alex works with prospective students and families and assists the Communications team with strategy and planning.
Alex is also a Data and Legal Analyst for the College Crisis Initiative (C2i), the leading source of reopening data for institutions of higher education in the US. In that role, Alex collects data about reopening plans for colleges and universities both in the US and abroad, leads communication efforts between research affiliates and the research team, and exercises her writing skills in C2i blog posts. Alex’s overall goal is to use her experience to help effect change in communities disproportionately impacted by systemic inequity and prejudice. She strives to put her values into practice by extending them to the outside community. Her volunteer efforts with organizations like The Men’s Shelter of Charlotte, her social justice work with her chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., and her grant projects for organizations like the Lancaster Children’s Home in Lancaster, South Carolina are testaments to work that is of importance to Ms. Marsicovetere, who firmly believes that each person adds value to a room just by being in it. Ultimately, Alex wants to lead a life that promotes respect for human dignity and advocates for the rights of others..
