Born and raised in Syria, where many children lost their education, Alex believes that education is a right for all people regardless of their gender, race, or circumstance. Over the summer, Alex volunteered as a teacher for Syrian refugee children and developed a passion for teaching and volunteering.

Alex loves to go on adventures and has backpacked through Europe this past summer. He is very passionate about traveling, meeting new people, and trying new foods. He is very excited to meet all of you and learn about your experiences in Madagascar.

At Lafayette, Alex enjoys being a resident advisor, an ECOrep, and an Arabic tutor. He is part of Lafayette Activities Forum and gets to plan events on a large scale for students of the Lafayette community.
