Jessi-Alex is a recent graduate from Macalester College in Minnesota, where they studied German studies, international studies, and linguistics. They were born in Germany—which is the root of their interest in all things related to the German language and various German-speaking cultures—and their family moved to Alabama when they were four, so they consider themself a strong Southern at heart. In their free time, they love listening to music, learning different languages, getting involved with various LGBTQIA+ and racial-justice causes, cooking and baking, and spending time with their dog, Ricky.
