Alex Nilsson: A hard worker being employed…and an athlete.

There are many student athletes in high school and there are many employed students. Some students are employed athletes, and others are neither employed or an athlete. Alex Nilsson is only one of the few hard-working students who has a job and participates in sports.

It’s not easy to juggle a job, sport, schoolwork, family and friends. Somehow, Alex Nilsson makes it work.

Nilsson plays traveling rugby in spring, works at a grocery store and takes advanced classes in high school. She spends time with her friends and family while taking time for her hobbies. With her time management skills, Nilsson balances her school life and her personal life.
