Meet the Stela 9 Girl: Alexandra


Alexandra is my dear friend, stemming back from our hometown of Aliso Viejo in Southern California. It was thanks to this little gem that I actually found my way to the Stela 9 HQ here in Antigua. That’s right, Director of Production/Assistant Stylist… and recruiter. Jack of all trades, really. There are many stories I could tell about this chica, including her most embarrassing story, but since she knows where I sleep… and all my deepest darkest secrets, mum’s gonna have to be the word. I’ll tell you, however, it would not disappoint.

Her hidden talent is one of my favorite parts about her, understandably as a female living in a world of males who make idiotic decisions on an almost constant basis. Her big family (that I pretend humbly believe are also mine during family parties) and never-failing ability to be there for you when you need her the most are amongst others. If you’re mid-convo about a topic you’re, or she’s, unsure of and you notice her hands and eyes drift to her phone, it’s because she’s google-searching the answer, and I’ll assure you there is no one on God’s green earth who is better skilled. When it comes to retrieving information, she gives Sherlock Holmes a real run for his money.

As you’ll probably tell by reading her interview, she’s not one for self-diclosure so naturally she asked me to describe her in 3 adjectives… which I had the courtesy of figuring out with the rest of our Stela 9 girls. #spoileralert
