Alexis Martinelli was born in Clovis, California but grew up in Fresno, California. She is 18 years old and will be turning 19 in late August of this year. Alexis is a college student attending her second year at Fresno City College. She graduated from Fresno High School in 2021 after the hardest few years of her life. In her junior year of high school, she left school to go on independent studies so she wouldn't fall behind and be allowed to graduate with her class because she was diagnosed with two autoimmune diseases along with mental illness and was missing out on everything in school. This was easier for her because she was allowed time to adjust to her 'new' ways of living and was able to study at home. After her graduation, she was unsure and scared to go to college, she thought she couldn't pursue her goals because her health prevented her from many things, but she still tried. She majored in music her first semester but later switched to journalism. She is currently on a transfer to Fresno State and has become stronger, more independent, and has overcome extreme challenges and will continue to do so! She is shy and introverted but has a passion for music, writing, as well as painting, and being with loved ones. She is excited to be writing for the Rampage and hopes that this experience will improve her writing and reporting skills as well as helps her to become less introverted.
