We recently talked with friend of the PPS Foundation, Alex Sierra, who serves on the Peoria Park District Board of Trustees. Alex was also a PPS student Board of Education member when he attended Manual High School. Thanks for talking with us, Alex!
What's someting you saw recently that made you smile?
That's such a tough question! I usually smile over the smallest of things. I really aim to enjoy the little things in life! My face lights up every time I see a former teacher, though! Recently, I saw Superintendent Dr. Kherat and I could not help but smile - every time! So, in short, educators!
If you could only have three apps on your smartphone, which ones would you pick?
Personally, I am not a fan of technology, even though I find myself glued to my phone. If I had to choose, it would be: LinkedIn, Youtube and (now) I'm a TikToker.
If you could snap your fingers and immediately learn to do anything, what would it be?
That is a loaded question! I am such an optimist - it would definitely be something along the lines of solving big picture problems... I'd have to go with learning how to resolve world-wide food inequities and hunger. Healthy, proper nutrition is SO important (social, physical, mental, emotional, etc.)!
Do you have a favorite band or concert you’ve been to?
To date, no, but I have been dying to go to a Rolling Loud concert! Also, I would have loved to witness Queen in-person! Aaaah... the good days...
What is your favorite meal or restaurant in Peoria?
I, unapologetically, love chicken. Yup. That's it.
Thank you to Alex for chatting with us! We love his energy and dedication to improving our Peoria community.
