Livingstone College students live by the motto, “There is life in the stone at Livingstone.” And Alexia Veale gives life through her style on a regular basis. Veale is a Junior Biology major aspiring to be a pharmacist hailing from “Queen City” Charlotte, North Carolina. If Veale had to describe her style it would be unique.

“There’s is a time and place for certain outfit choices…”

This risk taker is all about stepping out of the comfort zone. Being a very thrifty person, putting together outfits that are fashionable and inexpensive are easy because Veale is an experienced bargain shopper. With the majority of her wardrobe coming from thrift stores, it decreases the chances of others having similar outfits enormously.

Veale not only has beauty but brains and a caring heart as well. She is a current member of The Livingstone College LaLas cheerleading team and a 2016-2017 CIAA All-Star Cheerleader for Livingstone. Always looking for ways to give back to her community in Charlotte, she frequently gives her time to One Love, a nonprofit that provides school drives for kids and children’s therapy. Veale’s role is to help the students realize the importance of being involved and focused on school along with healthy relationships with peers.

“There’s is a time and place for certain outfit choices. I just like to do me and I care less if people don’t like it; if it makes me feel good then that’s all that matters,” Veale described as she passionately stated the importance of satisfying self.

Veale has no Do’s and Don’ts to live by for fashion because she is the ultimate risk taker believing in dressing how a person feels. That explains why so many of her peers at Livingstone College respond “Oh, that’s Alexia for you” when she pops out with an uncommon or weird arrangement.
