This month’s ML Beauty is Ms. Alexis Ilona Madrid. This 29 year old, hard working mother of two comes to us from Stockton, Ca. Alexis has lived in many places from Japan as a child to several places in the United States as a result of her being raised as a Navy Brat.
Alexis is the proud and dedicated mother of two handsome boys that she gives credit to for giving her the determination to work as hard as she does. For Alexis it is all about helping others and giving. Friends and Family are the most important things to her. Her main goal in life is to always continue to seek joy, for herself, for her children and to be the very best mother and role model she could possibly be.
Quote by Alexis: “I’ve learned that although things don’t always seem to fit together perfectly or even make much sense at all, I have arrived where I am today by following my intuition. “
Alexis has her AA in Liberal Arts and her BS in Business and Accounting. She is currently a first year law student, attending Laurence Drivon School of law, at Humphrey’s College in Stockton as well as preparing to sit for the CPA exam. A licensed cosmetologist, Bartender and Substitute teacher – Alexis is truly a busy woman. Oh we almost forgot, she was a loan officer for a few years as well. Now that’s an amazing resume!
These days Alexis has an overwhelming sense of accomplishment for all that she has done and overcome. She loves everything she does and feels blessed and hopes to give back and inspire other Latinas to trust and believe in themselves.
We here at Mr. Latino are truly honored to have a woman like Alexis representing us. Alexis is the essence of the mission of ML – to showcase Latinos and Latinas as we really are and to break the misconceptions and stereotypes. We wish Alexis nothing but the very best and we look forward to working with Alexis in the future.
