Alexa Twibell's main interests are math and physics, which is where she has focused her energy. Last summer Alexa took an online cryptology course from Duke University. She had a blast with the numbers, patterns and especially the coding. She not only likes to learn, but also is very active in teaching others what she has learned. Alexa thrives in competitive situations inside the classroom and outside with her other love, cheerleading. Alexa likes how she can relay her love of physics into a physical sport such as cheerleading. Alexa's mother is a big part of her cheerleading career being the marketing manager at the cheer gym. Her parents confide that it is an emotional roller coaster raising a gifted child because the child tends to "over-process" information which can lead to anxiety.
Alexa is highly motivated and very competitive. She is well spoken and enjoys teaching others what she knows which will come in handy on the show. Alexa got within the 99.9 percentile on an IQ test and has supportive parents who want to see her succeed.
