Meet the Founder

Hi! My name is Alexis and I am a high school senior from Orlando, Florida. I am passionate about International Relations, current events, and education. In my free time I enjoy art, music, and playing with my dog. When I started CAFYIR, two years ago, I saw a need for an educational program that focused on providing youth with educational opportunities and guidance for students. It has been an honor having the chance to work with some of the brightest and most driven students I've ever met and I could not be more excited to continue hosting workshops and providing my services to children everywhere!
