Alex Fox

My name is Alex Fox and I'm from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I'm currently a senior at UNI and am majoring in elementary education. When I'm not in class I'm usually working in Waverly, Iowa at a residential treatment where I work with teenagers that have mental health and anger issue. Some of my hobbies include playing sports, playing video games, and attending rap concerts. I also love spending time with my 5 year old niece, Chloe.
