TipSync and Talent Show

2013 As a 3rd year, Alex was part of the Ice Ice Babies, along with Hunter Wolff, Mia Weathers-Fowler, Erica mast, Riley Knight, and Bethany Brownrigg. The group performed a very short routine to (you guessed it) Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice, dressed as ballerinas. They did not place but looked hella fine, anyway. For the talent show, Alex danced, I think

2014 Alex participated in both TipSync and the talent show again as a fourth year. She and the former Ice Ice Babies reformed as the Street Six to perform "Everbody (Backstreet's Back)" by the Backstreet Boys, all six girls dressed like dudes in cargo shorts, snapbacks, and thrift shop windbreakers (provided by LJ). The group surprised the audience and especially the competing 4th year group, Miss Toxic and the Carbon Monoxides, with matching, glittery bro tanks emblazoned with 'Hotter Mess' in reference to the aforementioned boys' 'Hot Mess' tanks from their winning act the previous year. The 2014 East ll TipSync ended with some controversial results. The judges proclaimed Miss Toxic and the Carbon Monoxides as the official first place winners, but an unknown RC/Tipster started chanting "dance off," leading to... a dance off. The Street Six decidedly won the dance off, but since it was not a dance off requested by the judges, Miss Toxic kept the title. Besides, many Tipsters as well as some RCs and TAs agreed that the Street Six's routine was superior. But hey, who can beat guys in booty shorts.

In Game Theory, she said such memorable things as "I'm so technology". In the evolution game, she embraced her inner tiny mammal and became a size 1 mouse-thing, but baically won the game by never getting close to going extinct. As Japan, she contently did very little and tooootally didn't get a military while she technically wasn't allowed to *wink* *wink*.

For the talent show, Alex and Mia Weathers-Fowler choreographed and performed a 'dance to end racism' to the song "Stand By Me." Some last minute choreography was done at dinner, and their dance ended with Alex jumping on Mia for a big hug (or the other way around, I don't remember).


Alex is currently an RC for Duke East 2017. She is an RC for the fourth year girls, and was the fearless (but sleepy) leader of Alex's Struggle Squad during Term 1. She is currently known for knitting hats even if it's way too hot outside for that, getting really lit at the dances, having awful yet hilarious selfies, and saying "struggle bus" a lot (hence the name of her Term 1 RAG). Alex is considered to be one of the best RC's currently at East and is very well-loved by the fourth years for being so chill and funny. During her time as an RC, she has learned that the flag that she made as a 4th year is now a Term 2 relic, . Also, her Struggle Squad misses her a lot already.
