Alexandria Weaver '20- Senior Profile

From writing for the school newspaper club to leading the spirit committee and challenging herself academically, Alexandria Weaver '20 has spent her time at Lausanne embracing diverse opportunities that helped pave a path to success.

"Lausanne has allowed me to be a step ahead by teaching me how to become an independent, mature and self-starting young adult, prepared to take on challenges, Alexandria said."

When Alexandria was a sophomore, she decided to join the Lacrosse team as a way to explore a new interest. She ended up loving the competitiveness of the game and the support she gained from her teammates who became lifelong friends. 

"I enjoyed having the opportunity to play a sport that I had never played, as well as being welcomed with open arms by my teammates who have continuously encouraged me every step of the way on and off the field," Alexandria said. 

The senior also enjoyed showcasing her Lynx pride from the sideline when other Lausanne teams were playing and even helped hype up her classmates by helping plan pep rallies and gameday activities as part of her role as president of the spirit committee.

With Alexandria's love for her school and a knack for writing, she added to her extracurriculars by joining the newspaper club during her senior year. Her experience writing for the newspaper gave her a platform to express her creative side with the Lausanne community. 

Alexandria has always been dedicated to her extracurriculars, and she is just is driven when it comes to her school work. Along with being an IB Diploma Programme student, Alexandria's academic excellence earned inductions into the English Honors Society, Spanish Honors Society, National Honors Society, and the National Spanish Honors Society. 

When Alexandria began planning for life after graduation she knew she wanted to go somewhere that would continue giving her opportunities to succeed and could challenge her academically. She has decided to attend Mississippi University for Women in the fall to major in nursing to become a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist. 

"I chose this college because, when I toured, it reminded me a lot of Lausanne, because it is a smaller university that houses many opportunities, the teachers are invested in their students and their nursing program is quite rigorous," Alexandria said.

As college life nears, Alexandria is confident she will do well because of her experiences at Lausanne. 

"Lausanne has given me insight into the world that I am yet to be a part of and given me the chance to communicate and work alongside many different religions, political beliefs, and backgrounds," Alexandria said. "I will miss the friendships that I have made along the way, as well as the relationships with my instructors that worked tirelessly to ensure I was prepared for the next level."
