My name is Alexandria but I rather be called Alex. I am 32 years old. I am completely blind but not since birth. I have a rare form of Multiple Sclerosis that caused me to gradually lose my vision in my teenage years. I love my life and all it has to offer. I see the world from a whole different perspective and I find it to be amazing and most definitely beautiful.

Where do you live?

I currently live with my beautiful family in Oceano California. Yes, right in the heart of the central coast. Where we get to enjoy several beautiful beaches, sunshine, and plenty of tourist locations.

Who, are the special people in your life?

I have many special people in my life. But in my direct household I live with my wonderful fiancé James who I have been with 9 years and we currently are fostering a beautiful 9-year-old girl named Mireya who has been such a blessing for us. Other than James and Mireya I am very close to my two younger siblings Vio and Danny and older brother Jose. I am also close with my parents Paula and Jose who live nearby and also James’s parents as well.

Do you have any pets?

Oh boy do me!! Well let’s see… I have 4 dogs, 1cat, and 1 parrot

If so, can you tell us about them?

I consider all my pets to be my children. I often joke around that every time I have baby fever James brings home a pet. I have my retired guide Samantha whom I have the honor of working with for 8 strong years, Little-Little my Chihuahua diva, Mambo my momma’s boy, Mr. Who (Mireya’s new responsibility) We also have 1 cat named Kitty-Kitty Meow-Meow (yes, we went there) and our beautiful disabled Indian ringed necked parrot Peggy.

What are your likes, and dislikes?

I don’t like thieves or liars. I have had too many people come my way who have either stolen from me or family or constantly lie to make me feel sorry for them. I don’t put up with too much nonsense.

I do like hard working, strong minded, positive people that are willing to hold true friendships.

What are your hobbies?

Well, other than spending time with my family. I am very passionate about Krav Maga. It is a self-defense based from Israel. It is very aggressive and hands on. I enjoy learning how to protect myself with my hands through real life scenarios. I train very hard and take this practice serious. I can proudly say I am the only blind female in the world to hold a yellow belt in Krav Maga. I also enjoy doing Jungle Gym it is a functional fitness program. I enjoy putting my body through the tests. I enjoy this very much because of all I have gone through with having Multiple Sclerosis. I have had to overcome a lot of obstacles and paralysis is one of them. Yes, I was paralyzed from the breast down for 3 years of my life and I overcame it.

And…

What keeps you going?

My positive, never give up attitude my family gave me. They always treated me equally and never showed me pity.

What is your favorite song?

Oh, good question but I would have to say La Puerta Negra by Los Tigres del Norte. I have always liked this song and every time I am somewhere with my parents I dance it with my dad. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be my father/ daughter dance for my wedding.

What is your favorite movie?

The Velveteen Rabbit. Old movie but I can still see it in my head from when I was a little girl

What is your favorite book?

Rain of Gold

Who is your favorite author?

Victor Villa Senor

What is your favorite food?

Italian. I love Lasagna for sure

What is your favorite quote?

I control it… It doesn’t control me

What is your favorite affirmation?

You is kind, you is strong, and you is beautiful. Heard it on a movie and I always am telling myself that.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

When James plays his music way too loud and I can’t use my technology comfortably. Oh, and when people chew with their mouth open.

What do you think your best strengths are?

My personality, I am very strong minded, kind, caring, funny, loving and sincere. Not sure if you have heard “I wear my heart on my sleeve” well I feel I do. I don’t judge people instantly but instead try to feel them out and give them the sort of relationship they are seeking.

How do they help you in your work?

These attributes allow me to be a people person. I am very comfortable with myself and can carry on a conversation with someone as if I have known them for a long time.

What are your weaknesses, and, how are you working on making them stronger?

As odd as this may sound. Sometimes I have a hard time getting out of my bubble. I get used to one group of individuals/ friends and get nervous approaching them for helping me with my business such as holding virtual parties or asking for possible referrals they may have for me.

What is your dream for the future?

Well I hope to eventually get my license in massage therapy. Be married and be able to have children. It has been a challenge trying to conceive but I believe it will happen when the time is right.

How, does that relate to your work with Jewel Scents?

As for getting my license as a massage therapist and it relating to Jewel Scent I guess it is allowing me to grow my network of relationships and possible clientele for the future.

What is your preferred way of communicating?

Through cell or email

How, can someone reach you if they’re interested in buying from you, or working with you, or Jewel Scents in some way?

Is there anything about you, or your business, that you’d like to share, that I’ve not covered here?

Yes, I want to share that Jewel Scent currently had some exciting changes that I can now share. We recently merged with a company called Gemstra.
