Hi, I'm Alexandria, but everyone calls me Alex! I am Miss Rhode Island U.S. International and will be competing for the title of Miss U.S. International in a couple of weeks! I'm also a graduate student in the Human Development and Family Studies Master of Science program in Developmental Science at the University of Rhode Island. After completing a master's, I will obtain a PhD in Clinical Psychology to become a clinical psychologist. My research is on childhood trauma, which relates to my platform of child maltreatment awareness and prevention for children with and without special needs.
