Alex suddenly rose to fame when she started attending UNC sports games covered in not just paint, but in glitter last year. She became known as “Glitter Girl” and received attention not just on campus, but nationwide and has been featured by People Magazine and a bunch of other media outlets.
The coolest thing about Alex’s story is that she’s used this attention to talk about things that are important to her, including 1) body confidence and her recovery from anorexia and 2) her faith.
I got to take senior photos of Alex last week, and of course, there had to be glitter! Alex is heading to UVA next year to get her Master’s in school counseling, and I know she’ll do so well. Congrats, Alex!
