"It's better to try

and fail, than 

fail to try."

Being born with profound hearing and sight impairment, Alexandra had obvious struggles in her life.


With her amazingly supportive family and her own quiet strength and courage (and a hint of stubbornness) she has managed to fill her 25 years with enormous achievements. 

She's travelled the world independently and became a successful swimmer and skier. Unfortunately bouts of ill health forced her to rethink her path. Her next choice surprised everyone... She decided to become a doctor. 

From patient to doctor - Alexandra brings empathy and caring to everything she does.


Her disabilities have never stopped her - and now they are only making her stronger. 

"It's ok to feel lost in life... but finding your determination and setting a goal will help you climb out of that hole"
