Alejandrina Rangel - IVC JRN100

Alejandrina Rangel, 42, is a Calexico, California native currently coordinating the after-school program for the Calexico Unified School District.  She is attending Imperial Valley College to receive supplementary credentials to eventually teach upper-grade English as a Second Language (ESL) or English classes.

As a student in IVC’s journalism program, Alejandrina is submitting a semester project on graffiti as an original art.  “It is an art form throughout the world,” she said.  “Young artists believe that graffiti has a voice and that if you destroy it you are in a sense killing the only pure form of art.”
