Alexander's blog

Hello from beautiful southern California.  My name is Alexander Cisco. I have lived in California since I was very little. Currently, I am in my sophomore year at MiraCosta working on my general education requirements. It may sound funny, but I have not decided on what my major of study will be yet. There are so many fields to learn. History fascinates me, while English is one of my best subjects. Oh, did I forget to mention I am very artistic too? I am hoping to find my major soon with the help from the amazing Faculty and professors here at MiraCosta College. Thank you for reading my blog!

I've lived in Seattle, Virginia, Washington D.C., and now I'm settled in wonderful sunny SoCal. I enjoy to read, go to the beach, have movie nights with my friends, and Skype with family in Brazil. My major is Psychology and currently I'm on my second semester at MiraCosta!
