From Los Fresnos, Texas, Alejandro is a proud first-generation college graduate from The University of Texas Austin with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. His passions shine through in years of academic research with the Rose Research Group and legislative work with Texas State Senator Judith Zaffirini. Alejandro's ultimate goal is to continue advocating for the environment, especially in low-income areas and communities of color.
