My name is Alexander Eden and I am a first-year PhD student at Florida International University working under the guidance of Dr. Bryan Dewsbury. I have had a number of experiences in formal and informal education. Most recently, I taught Biology for a few years to 10th grade students at a high school in Massachusetts. As a first-generation college graduate, and a child of Hispanic immigrants, my family has made sacrifices in order to support me, and my victories are their victories. I hope to do what I can to ensure that others like me can also achieve their goals.
