Alex wants all children in California to have access to quality public education so they can pursue their own American dreams. He is proud to advocate for funding to support teachers, school infrastructure, and student wellbeing. As a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, Alex is also a strong supporter of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) educational opportunities inside and outside the classroom.
