Biography: My name is Alex Cruzzavala, and I'm an artist from Morgantown, WV. I'm 20 years old. In the fall of 2012 I'll be entering my sophomore year at Bard College in Upstate New York, where I plan to major in Written Arts and Music. With over 75 original songs written since the age of 15, music is my passion- I hope to pursue it as a career and support my future family through it. The person who inspires me most in life is my mother, Elisabeta Nagy, who came to the US in 1980 from Romania after enduring great hardships dealt by the government, physically forcing my family to leave the country. Without her strength I wouldn't exist.
