Ever since her video part in PJ Ladd’s Wonderful Horrible Life, Alexis Sablone is known for going big. She’s part of the women’s skateboarding elite. But the obstacles she’s conquering outside of skateboarding are way bigger than any gap or set of stairs. She’s a student at MIT. If you’re not familiar with MIT, a few of its notable alumni include the former director of the CIA, the second man to walk on the moon, and the guy who helped invent the internet. As a graduate student in MIT’s architecture program, Alexis is currently working on how to bury nuclear waste for a million years. Architecture that literally lasts forever. Huge.
For more, check out her recent interview on Jenkem.
