Tell us a bit about yourself?
My name is Alexandria Weisberg, but all my friends call me Weezy. This August I returned home to Denver, Colorado after 3 years of living, working and playing in China. In 2007, I graduated from CU Boulder and bought a one-way ticket to Beijing in an effort to delay adulthood and test my survival skills. While there, I started My Way West, a company which helps Chinese teens prepare to enter the crazy world of the American high school. It was fascinating to learn all about the teenage struggles in a place so far away and to try to counsel the students on all the things I wish I knew before entering 9th grade. This summer, as my 3rd anniversary in Bejing approached, I decided it was time to head home to land of blue skies, Chipotle burritos, and of course, my friends and family. I am about to turn 25 and am excited to see where the next phase of my life will lead me.
Why did you want to be a Roadtrip Nation Roadie?
I am a huge advocate of Roadtrip Nation’s mission. I think it’s great for kids to think outside the box after graduating from school and to take the time to discover what makes them happy. I am also VERY excited to take a road trip across the U.S.: its something I have always wanted to do.
