I was impressed with Alexis from the very moment I met her. In a world of pressures, comparisons, and anxieties, Alexis is enlightening, empowering, and focused. I have no doubt in my mind that Alexis will stand out for this generation of women, as a leader, and as an inspiration.
Alexis and I went to college together and it was then I told her “one day you’re going to take over the world.” She is one of the most inspiring, motivating, beautiful people I have ever known. Her work ethic is second to none and it is because of that that she has made a tremendous difference in not only young females lives but also young males.

My soul sister, girl-who-can-finish-my-sentences-before-I-do Alexis Jones. We were sorority sisters. And best friends. I knew she was special then. She was magnetic. Motivated. Excited about everything. A truly shining light. Lex is starting a movement and she is setting the tone for all of us.
