Team Member Tuesday – Alex Marquez

Event: Journey of Hope 2016

Hometown: Huntington Park, California

Why did you sign up for this event?
I signed up for the Journey of Hope because it offers us many opportunities. For me, the three most important are the opportunity for self-discovery, the opportunity for service, and the opportunity for travel.

What are you most excited for this summer?
There are many things I am excited about. It’s really hard to put a face to what it is I’m most excited about. For now though, I’m extremely excited to find out what it’s going to feel like when we’re cycling in 100 + degree weather with the nearest city being either many miles behind or many miles ahead. How will we cope!? Who or what will we be thinking about?!

Tell us a fun fact about yourself:
Not sure if this counts as a FUN fact, but I can swim 55 yards underwater with a single breath!
