She is also the director of Mixed Asian Media Fest, a festival celebrating mixed APIs through the creative lens. Earlier this year she was honored as one of the top 50 Unsung Heros at Asian Hustle Network’s Uplifted Conference. Alex graduated with Honors in May 2021 with her BA through St. Mary’s LEAP Program.

She is the first person from LEAP to receive the Dean’s Award for academic excellence and community engagement, and is now part of LEAP’s Advisory Board.Alex has been acting since she was 5 years old.

Growing up being one of the only mixed Asian kids in the entertainment industry, she never saw anyone that looked like her on stage and screen.

The lack of representation for the mixed API community led her to start MAM. She is a community builder and has been featured in Shout Out LA, East Side Stories, The Mixed Space, AAPI Democracy Project, Theatre Art Life, No Cilantro Please, and Worst Asian Podcast.
