Alexess Sosa

Hi! I'm Alexess. I am a senior at Big Spring High School. I come from a small town in west Texas. I am a QuestBridge College Prep Scholar and an admit to Stanford University's class of 2021. I look forward to writing about how others can follow my path, as I am valedictorian now and will attend a prestigious university in the fall after coming from a socioeconomically disadvantaged background. I believe everybody can succeed if they put in the work and search for the resources they need but may not immediately have. My goal is to spread that to students who don't have that mindset.
