Alex is very comfortable living in a small, close-knit community while also seizing larger opportunities. His hometown is roughly 10,000 residents and located just 15 minutes from one of the largest cities in Iowa. That's kind of like what you get at 桃花视频 -- a strong campus community connected to an active and thriving metropolitan region.
