#Meet the Mentors: Alexandria B.

Many of our mentors are known for their contagious smiles, and Alexandria is no exception!


Originally from Belleville, Ill., Alexandria (Alex) is a nursing major at the University of Missouri. She likes shopping and hanging out with her friends (especially at the same time!) When Alex isn’t studying, she enjoys going to the movies.

Caring for others is in Alex’s nature, like many nursing majors, however her personal experiences with mentorship led her to becoming a mentor. After graduation, Alex plans to become a pediatric nurse (so working with Desire to Aspire was a great fit for her!)

“I wanted to become involved as a Desire to Aspire mentor because I wanted to help out young girls by providing them a role model that they could always look up to. I love having a mentor during my college experience, so I wanted to be able to give that same feeling to the girls in D2A.”
