#272. August 21st, 2013: Alex Alvendia

I remember the day before I left for GW my freshman year and I was thinking to myself about who I would meet as I started my journey in college. I was really looking for/was in need of a mentorship and I definitely found one with Alex. Alex is someone who you know will always give you the honest truth, and I cannot explain how much I appreciate that in people. He sees things in such a logical and clear sense and in turn that makes him such a reliable and honest person to go to. Alex is also incredible at listening. He makes you feel like you’re the only person in the room and gives you his full attention. He cares about what you have to say and his memory is also impeccable. He is an absolutely phenomenal soccer player and just an overall incredible athlete in general. Alex is just someone who you know can lead with such courage and quality and his work ethic is admirable as well. He is hands down a role model to so many people and in my eyes he is for sure. He’s bound to be extremely successful and he definitely made his mark on this campus. Alex, thank you so much for being a mentor in my life and for helping me through so many situations. Thank you for all of the hilarious times and memories and for making me laugh countless times when I’ve needed it. Thank you for leading one of the best summers of my life and thank you for being a fantastic teammate and friend. Thank you for being the remarkable man that you are, and thank you for just being you!
