Alexandra Rodriguez was crowned Mrs. Texas International on April 13, 2008 at the beautiful Scottish Rite Auditorium in San Antonio, Texas.
Born and raised in Europe, Alexandra immigrated in the United States almost 9 years ago and is now a proud, and devoted, US citizen.
Alexandra is a proud wife and mother. She is married to Rene Rodriguez, a 20 year veteran and supervisor from the San Antonio Police Department (SAPD). Together, they have a beautiful 2 year old baby girl, Demi.
Alexandra is also a former member of the law enforcement family. She first worked as an intelligence coordinator assistant for HIDTA (High Intensity Drug trafficking Area) then as a Crime Scene Technician. It was there where she met her husband.
Because of her background in law enforcement and the disastrous incidents she witnessed first-hand, she is drawn to the concerns of “Narco-Terrorism”. It became a passion when she became a mother. Her goal is to help all children who are at great risk of the ever-forging enemy of drugs, alcohol, and substance abuse.
Alexandra has dedicated her reign to raising awareness of “Narco-Terrorism”. She believes that by opening the lines of communication and through education, people from all walks of life will be able to recognize (and ultimately understand) the causes/risks of addiction. Education will also introduce prevention techniques and treatment options.
To promote her cause, Alexandra is endorsing the efforts of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. NIDA supports most of the world's research on the health aspects of drug abuse and addiction. As part of this national alliance, Alexandra is able to expand her anti-drug campaign and reach the "national community". www.nida.nih.gov
