During her undergraduate career, Alexis was selected to participant in the 2018 CLAS Seminar & Field Trip to Valladolid, Mexico where she conducted research on the relationship between the rise of the MORENA party and political identification of university students during Mexico's national elections.

After graduation, she hopes to pursue a career in U.S.-Latin American relations, government, or NGOs to promote a more just and peaceful world.
