Alexis is a student at MYTHIRDPLACE. He always has a smile on his face and is ready to bring his ideas to the table. He is respectful and dedicated, working on graduating from Azusa High School while trying to impact his hometown city of Azusa. His laughter fills up the room and simultaneously puts smiles on all the mentors and students faces. He has been a big help to MYTHIRDPLACE, and our program wouldn’t be the same without him.
Q: What is your favorite part about MYTHIRDPLACE?
A: It’s a place where we can come after school and do homework, just chill, and worry about nothing else.
Q: Who has influenced you the most here or in your life?
A: It would probably be my dad. He will always tell me, “I’m giving this to you because I never had this when I was small.” So yeah!
Q: What is it like to feel a part of MYTHIRDPLACE?
A: Well I’m super glad this have this program here, cause when I was small, I was having trouble in school and I never had anywhere to get help– But MYTHIRDPLACE has really helped me out.
Q: How has MYTHIRDPLACE helped you with everyday life?
A: Actually we went camping and had this group discussion about what problems we have had, and Omar (a leader at MYTHIRDPLACE) was the one who helped me with my personal problems. And he told me to tell my parents what was going on in my life, rather than deal with it on my own. He was the one who helped me through my problems when I didn’t have anyone else.
