Model | Entrepreneur | Philanthropist
I’m Alexa! You may have heard about me on the show Celebrity Undercover Boss, the cover of Fab-U-Plus Magazine, or the community service events I host with Every Body Deserves Love Inc. in Orange County, California. Whatever journey you may be on, I am so glad it led you here.
My career in the Fashion Industry launched in 2017 after being scouted online from one of my social media images. A few years ago I started an Instagram account to try to create a safe and radically inclusive space on social media. I wanted to help myself BE MYSELF. This became real for me once I knew I wasn’t alone in these feelings. I have joyful committed to helping myself and others by recognizing this undeniable truth: every body is deserving of love.
For years, I felt as though I wasn’t worthy of this precious joy. If all humans are created equal, why do we focus so much on our visible differences? I had asked myself, why do my differences make me feel rejected and unlovable? The answer that came to mind was representation and visibility. I had never seen a girl who had my struggles on the big screen.
After walking in my first show for LA Fashion week, my fashion career quickly took off with over 35 shows, fittings, photoshoots, TV appearances and social media advertisements booked before 2018.
Modeling was not always my dream. Outside of modeling, I have a major passion for helping others and children with their self-love education and personal development. In 2018 I graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Human Services with a minor in Psychology and an emphasis on Mental Health.
I want to continue to evolve the fashion and entertainment industry to be more inclusive and represent all types of beauty. This world should be designed for everyone and every BODY. As I learn and grow, I plan on keeping that same mission in mind. In 2021, I will proudly launch my own custom eco-friendly swimwear brand Body Love Swimwear available for women sizes xs to 3x.
