Born in North Carolina and raised in Sarasota, FL, Alexandra Guelzow has known the joy of being introduced to diverse cultures from a young age. A graduate from the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee, Alex holds a major in History and a minor in Spanish and Latin American Studies.
A pivotal moment in her studies was being introduced to the history of Sephardim and Ladino (Judeo-Español). Through learning about these subjects and there histories, she gained a deeper understanding and appreciation for her own Jewish background. In her studies, she discovered the many connections between her own diverse community and that of the Latine community. Carrying with her the Jewish values of “tikkun olam” (repair of the world) and “tzedek” (justice), Alex has committed herself to the pursuit of justice for all and believes that justice is best gained through education and outreach. A
lex is honored to be a part of the UnidosNow team and looks forward to giving back to the community which has given so much to her.
