Alex Wood was a participant in the 2009 Emerging Youth Leaders project to Central Europe. After one month of intense BoldLeaders curriculum, she felt more challenged and inspired than ever before. BoldLeaders quickly became a large part of her life. Between hosting students, helping with fundraisers, and serving as a member on the board of directors, Alex hopes to provide other teenagers and adults with similar life-changing experiences. Currently studying abroad in Paris and getting a degree at Reed College, Alex is very interested in how cultures interact, how privilege works, and how we can provide equal opportunities to everyone — especially youth.
Alex has been a participant host and long-time board member for BoldLeaders. A graduate of Reed College, she now lives in Oakland, CA.
