At 10, Alexandra was accepted into the All-State Children's Choir and Tampa Bay Children's Choir, where she learned to sing in multiple languages, performed in yearly concerts and recitals and was even named an All-State vocalist in 2012. At 13, Alexandra received her first guitar and taught herself to play. From there, she started competing in pageants and local talent shows, and also became heavily involved in dance. After three years, she started experiencing chronic pain, and for the past year and a half, doctors have been unable to accurately diagnose her. She had to stop dancing six months ago and though some days are better than others, not a day goes by that she isn't in some level of pain from her neck down to her ankles. Despite it all, Alexandra is entering her junior year of high school with a 4.0 GPA and is a year ahead academically. She also performs as often as possible at open mic nights as well as a few weddings in order to get her name out there as an artist.
