Alexa Gold is a Stanford junior undergraduate double majoring in communication and political science. She is a New York City native whose passion for media and entertainment began at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. Her interest in political science was fueled by the increases in polarization, spread of disinformation and heightened racial tensions of the past several years. In her free time, Alexa enjoys reading, sports (particularly hockey and surfing), and watching scary movies.
