Christina Alex is a writer, speaker and licensed master’s level social
worker with a passion for inspiring teens to pursue their dreams. Research
shows that girls often disown their true voice at puberty to please
others, while boys deny their emotions to fit society’s expectations.
This behavior limits their adult lives unless they reclaim their authentic
self, explore their passions and discover their unique purpose.
Over the last 15 years, Christina has written about social issues
from teen dating violence to AIDS and focused on empowering youth
through New York City government, healthcare and community programs.
Through her writing, speaking and social work, she promotes a strong
sense of self, healthy choices and supportive mentors as protection
against depression, sexual assault, substance abuse and other dangers
that derail teen dreams.
