Welcome to the Meraki Blog, my name is Alexis! I am a twenty-something college graduate from Iowa State (where I joined Alpha Phi!) and am currently living in Des Moines, IA. Here are some facts about me!

What is your favorite color?

PINK! Growing up a tomboy I really struggled to embrace my feminine side, but once I became more comfortable with myself as a women, and recognized that I could passionately love pink without being less of a person, I fully embraced the beautiful color!

What’s your favorite ’90s jam?

Wannabe by Spice Girls. I don’t think there is even a competition in this one for me.

If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why?

An elephant! They’re my favorite animal 🙂

What’s the most unusual item in your desk drawer?

I like to make myself at home wherever I go, so my desk is packed full of basic necessities. The most unusual thing in there? Probably the bottles of glitter used for filling up birthday cards.

How did people describe you in your high school yearbook?

I would say a combination of nerdy, quiet, and slightly uptight.
