Alexandra Stewart is a Customer Success Executive at 4th Down Solutions, a full-service technology agency, working with clients to bring their engagement & learning ideas come to life. She is also the owner and face of the body-positive Chicago-based blog Sassy Confetti.
She joined the Brain Research Foundation Youth Leadership Board because of her mother who passed away from a brain tumor in 2004. Since her death, she has been looking to help progress brain research in any way she can. There has been little progress made towards any sort of life-prolonging treatment for glioblastomas and many of the other brain-related diseases and injuries that affect people worldwide and Alex knows that research is the greatest way to make progress towards the goal of eradicating brain cancer.
Alex graduated from Fairfield University in Connecticut and attended Woodlands Academy in Lake Forest, IL for high school. She currently resides in Chicago, IL.
