As a current student, Alex has key insight into the education industry, allowing him to write passionately and thoroughly about topics surrounding education. Whether it's news about education or opinion-based coverage, Alex is able to cover the topic objectively.
Alex is large consumer of United States entertainment. From television to movies to music to pop culture, Alex is well-versed in all things entertainment. This manifested itself into his first entertainment piece published in The Huffington Post in 2016 about Beyonce's album 'Lemonade'. The piece was shared thousands of time on Twitter and Facebook.
Alex has written about politics for approximately three years as a writer for Affinity Magazine, which is a politics-focused, international magazine written by teenagers. His experience analyzing and reporting news stories -- especially those that have to do with United States politics -- has allowed him to continue writing about national politics.
Alex was published in Teen Vogue as a freelance writer. He was able to have an article published based on both his writing skills and past experiences. Notably, Alex has worked for years writing for Affinity Magazine as well as having work published in a variety of other online publications, so his experience allowed him to use his experience to acquire this opportunity.
