Alexander is currently exploring areas of study that impassionate him. He loves writing, music, the study of animals (especially marine life), and video games. He is able to continue pursuing these passions due to the lifesaving heart transplant he received in September of 2017. An unexpected emergency following a family vacation led to him being hospitalized in August of 2017, and he was put on an artificial heart. Due to the generosity of a donor, he was able to receive a transplant remarkably quickly and that saved his life. He has made a full recovery!
