  • College: FSU WAP 2006-

    • WorldMUN 07: United Nations Development Program, China (Diplomacy Award)


Alex is sometimes known as "The Deacon of Love". He also wishes to save the world, one starving African child at a time, through his student organization, Global Humanitarian Volunteers.

Alex is French, but has a British Accent. He was born in Los Angeles, but spent a large portion of his life in France, but learned English from his mother, who was born in Rwanda, but has a British accent as well. Alex's friend Ian has had to repeat this so many times to random girls that he has it memorized.
