Alexis Watkins

10th Grade Western International High School

Secretary of the Youth Board

Alexis joined Life Directions during her 9th grade year through participation in the Peer Motivation Program. She has been actively advocating and creating awareness of Life Directions youth board and programs in her school. Alexis was employed through the summer of 2017 and plans to return during the next summer to work alongside her Life Directions peers and staff. Alexis will pursue a career as a veterinarian and is ecstatic to have been recommended to serve as a mentor for 8th graders from her former middle school. She has nearly perfect attendance in all of Life Directions out of school activities and is an active part of their planning. Alexis' thoughts: "My goal is to recruit more people to Life Directions so they can benefit like I have. More people should know about Life Directions
