CEO & FOUNDER
Hello! My name is Alexandria, I am an 18-year-old human rights activist and nonprofit leader. I am passionate about encouraging youth involvement in human rights and increasing access to education. I have received several national and international awards for my work and was recently named Florida's Top High School Volunteer by the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards and a Young Hero by the National Liberty Museum.
I enjoy using technology to help youth develop creative solutions to human rights issues. I received the National Award for Aspirations in Computing from the National Center for Women in Information Technology as well as the Stanford She++ Fellowship and was selected as a 2017 Vital Voices Her Lead Fellow.
I am deeply involved in my community and recently completed a term on the Alachua County School Board as the Inaugural Student Representative where I focused on closing the achievement gap. I am also a member of the Education Committee of Gainesville for All, a grassroots organization. I used my experiences with the education system to create Standing Tall, a program working to close the achievement gap in Alachua County through mentorship and civic engagement. Standing Tall was selected as a winner of the Ashoka T-Mobile Changemaker Challenge and the Miracle Corners of the World Young Leaders Access Program.

Director of Operations - Standing Tall
Hello everyone! My name is Kelsey, and I am a freshman at the University of Florida. I am passionate about mental health, human rights, helping others, and promoting equality and equity throughout communities. I have been an activist for equal access to resources, mental health, and fairness for a long time. I am one of a handful of Certified Youth QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper Instructors in the country and I am currently an ambassador for the University’s Counseling and Wellness Center. I also serve on a social justice committee which promotes equality, education, and inclusivity throughout the community.
I have joined the Human Project, specifically Standing Tall, because I care about the organization’s overarching goals and aims, as well as the importance of helping those who want to contribute to their communities be able to start projects and gain resources. I look forward to helping others to develop complex problem-solving, communication, leadership skills and to explore their interests. Through this project, I will be able to help others understand they can make a difference which is amazing.
