Alexa Mccolgan

Alexa Mccolgan is a Mexican American filmmaker. She is now a senior at Marymount Manhattan College in New York City, where she majors in Film and Production. Born in Leon Guanajuato and raised between Leon and Los Angeles, California, she gained a deep affection for both vastly different cultures. Even as a child, she loved memorializing the beauty around her— whether in sunny Mexico or in dazzling LA, whether that was with her mom’s bedazzled flip phone or with a camera. Right now, Alexa is interested in documenting the untapped gems and grievances of the cultures she came up immersed in.
