A New Jersey native, Alexia Lewis is passionate about cultivating genuine progressive change. She found this love when she was named the 2016-17 Northeast Youth of the Year, a national advocate for Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Alexia went on to study Political Science at the illustrious Hampton University and is continuing to exercise her passion for creating genuine change. Her Junior year of college, Alexia began interning for the US Department of State working on a cultural diplomacy project in Eritrea. Then in 2019, she was named a REAL Change Fellow and began doing advocacy work for global poverty. Still passionate about progressive change, Alexia is now putting her organizing skills to the ultimate test as a Digital Communications Associate at NextGen America. She looks forward to graduating from Hampton University in May, winning in 2020, and continuing her career as a socio-political game changer.
