Student Legal and Mediation Services welcomes one of its newest members: Alexa Grigsby.
Alexa is from the Philippines, and lived there for fifteen years before moving to Singapore, where she graduated from high school. After her dad, a local Texan, told her about Sam Houston State University she moved to the United States to attend SHSU.
Alexa will be a junior next semester after having attended Sam Houston for two years. She is a Political Science major with a minor in History. In the future, she wants to work in the Foreign Service and eventually be the American Ambassador to the Philippines.
During the summers, Alexa goes back to the Philippines to work at the U.S. Embassy in Manila. In her free time she enjoys watching her favorite TV shows and movies, which include Chuck, Supernatural, Sherlock, Breaking Bad, the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Amelie, and Rear Window. She also enjoys listening to her favorite musicians, including Keane, Incubus, and Muse.
After experiencing how much help Student Legal and Mediation Services can be to students, she knew that she wanted to work here. That way she could be a part of something that helps students so much. Alexa will help make sure the office runs efficiently, so that SLMS can provide quality legal services to the students here at Sam.
