Paying Her Success Forward for Others
Growing up in an underserved community in Michigan, Alexis didn’t realize college was an option for her—until she joined a community program that exposed kids like her to all the possibilities of a college degree. Today, she understands that she wouldn’t be where she is without her community and without programs that invest in improving people’s lives.
Alexis was drawn to United Way of Metropolitan Dallas because it provided an opportunity to make a broad impact on North Texas. Drawing on her experience in the Michigan community program, she Lives United so she can create for others the same type of transformative change that she experienced.
