March 2019 Student of the Month: Alexandra Pena
Alexandra is the daughter of Rosa Pimentel. In her free time, Alex enjoys giving back to her community through Teen Court, REBAR, her church, and the California Association of Youth Courts board. She also enjoys spending time with her family. Alex plans to attend a 4 year university in either the Bay Area or Southern California where she will major in philosophy. After college, Alex hopes to fulfill her dream of becoming a lawyer, helping underrepresented people, and maybe even becoming a judge or working for the FBI later on in her career. Alex says, “AR taught me that challenges help you become a stronger person, and having people who care about you makes everything better. It has given me a family outside of my own and opportunities that I wouldn’t have had if I had gone to a different school.” Alex will graduate with 39 college units.
