Lexie is passionate about providing students with resources to succeed in academics and life. As the first in her family to pursue a STEM degree, she understands the nuances of not only adapting to life at college but taking on large challenges. She wants to provide other students with the advice and resources that helped her succeed. She believes that everyone is capable of success with just the right guidance and help.
With this passion to help her peers thrive at Stanford and beyond, she chose to become a Peer Learning Consultant. She hopes to continue creating spaces, sharing resources, and encouraging all students to pursue their dreams and reach their goals.
