Hi!! I'm Alexander. Here are some things about me: I love the NBA, am passionate about a good burrito, avidly watch Game of Thrones, and actively fight for social justice and equality. I'm into yoga, I have a tattoo (and want more), and fantasize about living in the U.K. I am a freshman at Georgia State University, where I plan to graduate with a degree in Economics and Philosophy. I'm always down to explore new neighborhoods and coffee shops in Atlanta!
