Alex McGurk

Alex is a Chicago native and currently a Senior at NYU studying politics and journalism. She previously studied in Berlin for a semester while monitoring elections there and spent a summer interning at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.  She joined the Headcount team in August 2018 after being introduced to the organization at a Harry Styles concert (who she unashamedly listens to).

A Chicagoan by heart, Alex loves deep dish pizza and extra spicy giardiniera, but is on a personal mission to find the best Chinese restaurant in Manhattan. In her spare time Alex likes swimming, watching old movies (It's a Wonderful Life is her favourite) and painting
