Alexa Hernandez is a fourth-year student at UGA studying Political Science and International Affairs with an expected graduation date of May 2022. Aside from being one of the Head Delegates for UGA’s Model United Nations team, Alexa is a Student Ambassador for the School of Public and International Affairs and the Vice President of the Georgia Museum of Art Student Association. Outside of the University, Alexa has worked as a Communications Intern for Historic Athens, which is a non-profit focusing on the historic preservation of Athens, and currently works as a Senate Aide at the Georgia State Capitol. Alexa hopes to become a contract lawyer in the future, but as of now she is interested in researching topics in political psychology, far-right politics, and/or international diplomacy. Alexa loves baking, listening to Taylor Swift, and trying to binge-watch shows that she doesn’t have enough time for (current obsession: Game of Thrones).
