Etched in Stone

Alexys Ruiz

Alexys Ruiz is a hardworking student attending her senior year at Fossil Ridge High School; this is her first year in Journalism. Alexys is very involved at her school from being on the varsity dance team for three years to creating and collaborating with students to create Fossil’s iconic yearbook. After school,  Alexys joins her teammates at practices and often performs at Fossil’s big sporting events.

Alexys lives with her mom, Susana, and spends a lot of time with her family since they’re very close.  She was originally born in Aurora, Colorado but moved to the small college town of Fort Collins in third grade. Alexys loves doing fun activities with her friends and making great memories such as late night drives, jamming out to music, and going out to eat.

For college, her love for kids pushes her mind to accomplish her dream job of becoming a Pediatric Nurse to help and care for children from all around the world.  In the near future, Alexys’ outgoing personality intrigues her to travel and explore the world--her top most desirable places she wants to visit are Greece, Spain, and Brazil.  Alexys wants to explore new religions and different cultures that we in American aren't aware of. Later in life, Alexys would love to settle down near the coast due to her love of the warm, intoxicating weather and her love of white sandy beaches.
