Alejandro Rodríguez Deputy Treasurer
Alejandro Rodríguez is currently pursuing a BFA in Acting at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.
Originally from Kissimmee, FL, he is the first of his family to be born and raised in one of the 50 U.S. states, as his family originally hails from Puerto Rico. His passions include gun control, environmental protections, education, and the protection of Latino rights. The role of an artist is often said to be the medium that puts humanity into confrontation with itself, proposing questions that expose the truth. Alejandro can think of no better way to serve his community than to use his art as a platform to promote reflection upon ourselves and call for action within our democracy. He believes the first step toward that goal is to get informed and to get involved in the conversation, and for this reason, he is proud to be serving as Deputy Treasure of the NYU College Democrats.
