About Alex: My name is Alex Gaston, and I work at College to Congress helping students launch their careers on Capitol Hill. I went to business school at Texas A&M University, earned my Master of Public Administration at Gallaudet University, and studied women and politics at American University. Outside of work, I love to read, rock climb, and spend time with my dog, Tucker!

I moved from Texas to DC to attend graduate school at Gallaudet University in 2016.
