Alejandro Mendoza is a sophomore History and Philosophy double major on a Pre-Law track here at Washington College, but his interest expand even wider than his areas of study. Originally from Los Angeles, California, he has taken an active role on campus. Alejandro is a member of the Omicron-Phi chapter or Kappa Sigma fraternity on campus. In addition to being the Public Relations director for Kappa Sigma, he is also the chair of the organizations’ committee in SGA Senate, as well as participating in WAC’s new club on campus, Mock Trial. Not only is Alejandro an exemplar Washington College student, but he’s actually written a book! Shadow of the Bambino Tree is set in 1939 Italy and follows a young boy who recognizes the minor problems of his own life all while trying to escape his reality through literature. Alejandro believes his book to be his greatest accomplishment in his teenage life. Though he has no plans to write another book in the near future, he states that the authoring of his book was driven by a comment made from one of his former peers on his lack of writing skills. Alejandro has worked several jobs in his past, but hopes to become a lawyer someday, setting his sights on a law degree either from the University of Southern California or Columbia University. Alejandro is always looking to learn and work hard. His book is available for purchase on amazon!
