Graduating Senior: Alex Nzambi

Alex Nzambi

Pikesville High School

Tell us about a teacher, assignment, field trip, or extracurricular activity that had a significant impact on you during your years as a BCPS student?

I have run cross country and indoor and outdoor track and field since the ninth grade. Being a 12-season athlete has taught me dedication and responsibility. Improving in both of these sports has drawn the blueprint for me to succeed with my schoolwork and in life.

During your years as a BCPS student, what did you accomplish that you are most proud of? 

Out of my four years as a BCPS student, I am most proud of coming back from my injuries and contributing to breaking my school record for the 4x400m relay. 

What’s next for you? What are your college or employment plans immediately after graduation?

After graduation, I will be a lifeguard for the summer, then I will be attending Indiana University of Pennsylvania studying communications and marketing.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

In 10 years, I see myself graduated from college with a master’s in communication and marketing, with a job in fashion or marketing, building my resume to become the global director of entertainment and influencer marketing for Adidas.

“Alex Nzambi is one of the most genuine, kind-hearted young men I've ever encountered. He accepts others for who they are, regardless of differences they may have with him, and encourages his peers to do the same. In a recent project on racism on college campuses, Alex sought to understand points of view that oppose his very being in order to seek to mentor his peers and preach universal respect. His level-mindedness coupled with his intellect and maturity have created a warm, empathetic, young man.

“Alex positively insists on earning what is given to him and works hard to be successful. This leads him to appreciate when others take time out to help him. For example, when Alex was working on his college essay, I stayed one evening to help him, and the response from Alex was overwhelming. The appreciation he had for my time and my assistance wasn't fleeting, and he still brings it up months later. He uses the skills that I taught him that afternoon to help his peers, often serving as a coach for scholarship essays and generally motivating the other students in our class to push themselves and not give up.

“What strikes me most about Alex is his kindness. He is a polite and decent young man. He is simply a good person with a big heart. His interests including running track. He is graduating with a 3.79 QPA and heading to the Indiana University of Pennsylvania to study marketing. He is a stellar scholar, athlete, leader, and most importantly, young man.
