Alexis, who is the youngest of four children, comes from a long line of cultural singers and artists, hunters, storytellers, filmmakers, and professors.

Alexis flourished in high-pressure environments and continues to take pleasure in activities such as ice hockey, baseball, kickboxing, and horseback riding. In addition to that, she is the lead vocalist for the rock band that her family plays in. She has a dream of one day appearing in an action movie as a First Nation or Indigenous woman who has superpowers.
Paulina Alexis is well-known among her family and friends for possessing a fierce warrior’s spirit while yet maintaining a gentle disposition. She is always eager to confront whatever task the creator puts in front of her with the bravery and love of her people. Her vast family helps to keep her grounded and serves as a constant reminder to always show gratitude to the Creator and to her ancestors for the life they have given her, to always respect mother earth and all life around her, and to always be proud of who she is and her background. Alexis was given the Indian name “Wagiya Cizhan,” which translates to “young female eagle,” and she plans to spend her life learning about the world while being resilient and authentic to who she is.
