Hello, my name is Alexandria Rios. I am a senior from Holland, Michigan. I have a bubbly and outgoing personality and I enjoy talking to and meeting new people. When I arrived at Holy Cross, I was set on becoming an education major. I found my career choice to be a Communications major instead, but still keeping in mind education. Holy Cross College has helped to prepare me for my journey of life after I graduate.

I learned about Holy Cross College from a student at my high school that had looked into coming here for school. We are a huge Notre Dame family, so I decided to look into what they have to offer. I came for a visit at the beginning of my senior year in high school, and from that visit, I knew exactly that this is where I wanted to attend.

Holy Cross has given me many opportunities to explore the world, complete service work, and experience an internship of my choosing. Holy Cross has helped me grow and develop many communication and leadership skills. Part of this was being part of the student government committees and being committed to my work that I was going to be doing.

 My capstone theme is "The doors we open and close each day…determine the lives we live." Every day we open doors to new and exciting opportunities. Sometimes those opportunities don't always end up good, but sometimes I think you have to go through every door you can that comes in your way to end up to where you want to be in your life. As for me my journey through Holy Cross has had many doors in my way. I have closed many doors in my time being at Holy Cross where I felt like it would better me as a person and open up new doors that have led me to the person that I have become now.
