My name is Alexa Johnson I am a Sophomore transfer student here at Spelman college. I’m from Ann Arbor, Michigan who is looking to study Political Science with the hopes of being a future attorney.

When discussing my mindset I think of myself as someone who is always ready to grow, and learn and just live. I think often times there is too much focus on how we should be doing things in our life, or why. Sometimes I like to just forget about the rules and do what I feel and what brings me joy.

My experience with music has probably shaped my life. From a young age, listening to my dad sing, I then became his shadow and found my love for singing, as it just brought relief and joy to my life. I grew up listening to Luther Vandross, Anita Baker, and one of my favorites now Brian McKnight, music is was and still is a big part of my life.
