Alejandrie is a Hispanic woman who was born and raised in the Bronx, NY. She grew up the oldest of seven siblings and very close to the family and values of education and hard work was instilled in the family. Being the oldest of seven siblings, it motivated her to become a role model for her siblings to look up to and set an example for. Alejandrie graduated with her undergrad in Criminal Justice and worked in foster care at a nonprofit organization for five years where she started as an intern and worked her way up.
Alejandrie made her transition to Philadelphia during the pandemic in 2020 and has been trying to find her place here. She enrolled in Temple University and will be graduating Grad School with a MSW in one year. While she has been in Philadelphia she has continued to work with nonprofit organizations and give back to low income communities during the holidays.
Alejandrie was able to find a job at Home of the Sparrow where it allows her to combine professional and educational experience by working in the WRAP program with women trying to reintegrate back into society. As a Hispanic woman who grew up in a low-income community, it is her motivation to help other women become the best versions of themselves and watch them grow to avoid recidivism and encourage self-sufficiency/independence. The reasons for lasting long in this field have been self-care as she enjoys traveling, hiking, and going back to NY to visit friends and family.
