Alex is a 2021 graduate of the University of Virginia with a BA in Psychology. He grew up in Southeastern Virginia and played both club and high school soccer. Alex first encountered TCP at SLS18, and in 2020 a CP missionary invited him to apply to TCP. He was drawn to TCP’s mission of proclaiming each person's inherent human dignity.
