Born in Haiti, Jeffee Alexandre moved to the U.S. at the age of 9 following his mother’s death, accompanied by his father and five siblings.
His father worked two jobs to support the family, but more help was needed, so Jeffee began working at a dollar store in the Opa-locka Hialeah Flea Market when he was 12. He worked weekends throughout middle school and most of high school, stocking merchandise on shelves and unloading trucks as well as handling sales and customer service.
Inspired by his father’s dedication and determined to do better, Jeffee enrolled at FIU, studying full-time while working as a full-time sales associate at Walmart.
At FIU, Jeffee was a member of ALPFA at FIU (Association of Latino Professionals for America) an organization dedicated to enhancing opportunities in the business, accounting, finance and related professions. He participated in the organization’s recruitment and mentorship committees, guiding students academically and on their path to success. He also was a member of Techgroup and Toastmasters @ FIU Business.
In February, Jeffee completed an internship at PwC’s Risk Assurance practice. Today three job offers await Jeffee’s graduation: JP Morgan Risk Management, Bank of America Finance Management Associate Program (FMAP), and IBM Consulting.
After graduation, Jeffee will take the GMAT exam and hopes to pursue an MBA through Harvard Business School’s 2+2 Program, a deferred admission program for students who enroll after working for two years.
