Cleveland, Ohio ■ Xavier University
Hello! My name is Alex Fath and I’m from Cleveland, Ohio. I am a recent graduate from Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio where I majored in International Studies and minored in Spanish, Peace & Justice Studies, and Latin American Studies. I have been blessed to have been able to attend Ursuline and Jesuit schools where service is a core ideal. Because of that, I have been able to become increasingly passionate for working for and with others.
In 2015, I participated in a Solidarity Semester in Nicaragua. It was during this time my passion grew for the people, culture, and history of Central America and the Jesuit ideals of being a “Woman for Others”. In fall 2016, I was able to help organize and lead a trip to the U.S.-Mexico Border in Nogales, Arizona, for the School of the America’s watch where the focus was on demilitarization of the border. From these experiences, I have learned the influence of U.S history in Latin America and how that history has led to instances of forced migration.
I heard about Border Servant Corps and immediately fell in love with the core values and mission of the program as it encompasses many issues for which I am passionate about. I am extremely excited to continue to learn at Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center and to be a part of the Border Servant Corps Community.
