Growing up on both sides of the US-Mexico border, Lexy has the language skills and the vibrant, outgoing personality that reflect her comfort engaging with, learning from and teaching anyone who crosses her path. As an after-school mentor for younger students and a prominent member of the Mt. Carmel drama department, she brings smiles to the faces of those in her community through thoughtful acts of kindness: a thank you note for being a good friend, an offer to lend a hand, or a frappuccino for a classmate having a bad day. Lexy will be attending CSU Fullerton in the fall, where she will assuredly display her Top 10 Secrets for a Better Life, including meeting new people, having new experiences, showing kindness, making a positive impact, and remaining passionate about each moment of her life. Her enthusimism is inspiring, and it is with this contagious energy and a playlist full of Springsteen songs that she will continue to light up our world.
