It isn’t too often that your average kid ever takes wholehearted interest in to the bland and boring political talk on the news. However, Alexa is here to reveal the importance of kids taking on their responsibilities as citizens to be informed and most importantly to be involved. The American Pulse evaluates the "big picture" of what is going on in the world and teaches kids to always have an open mind about even the utmost controversial issues. We feature the utmost overzealous future student leaders of America and how they are doing their part in the community by capitalizing on what they love. The fate of our future is held within the hands of the bright young Americans and it is our duty as American citizens to execute our talents for the benefit of our nation. The American Pulse is the push start for kids to get out there, stay informed, and get involved. Listen every Monday at 1PM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Kids Channel.
Alexa Jay lives in sunny south Florida and is a 17 year old senior in high school. On the brink of setting sail for college, Alexa is focusing on applying to different colleges (University of Florida is her number one, of course- Go Gators!) all while staying highly involved in her community and her school. Alexa's ambitious energy has not gone unnoticed, for she holds many active leadership positions within her school. She is actively involved in her Student government and is a member of the National Honor Society. She has attended many conventions all over the state to promote the student government body and plans to head to Alabama this year for a regional convention. She also was elected by her peers to represent her senior class as President. She presides over all class meetings, makes monetary decisions about her classes funding, and plans the utmost important event of anyone's high school career: prom! With her most positive intentions of getting into the University of Florida and majoring in telecommunications, she takes her academics very seriously and is always up for a challenge! Alexa is taking two advanced placement courses and two dual enrollment courses at a local college. As always, academics and involvement in school are always a first priority, but she never seems to forget to always have fun and enjoy the beauty of being a kid. Alexa has an unremitting commitment to succeed and hopes to encourage you to do the same and not be afraid to pursue your dreams.
