The Echo

Alex Balfour
Hi my name is Alex Dominique Balfour! You can call me Fat-Al or Al Bal. I am a copy editor for this lovely newspaper. I am a super all-star soccer player so you can probably catch me at the U.S. Bank Stadium, or even better at the SLPHS stadium. Sometimes I get really sad at school when I think about not being with my cats. It's going to be a really hard transition back to school. I'm definitely a crazy cat lady. It's okay if I don't find a man because I have my cats. You've probably seen me on the show Friends. I was cast because I have so many friends, a.k.a. my cats. Their names are Thunder and Blaze. I also had a guinea pig named Bob who I named after my dad. If you ever see me by myself in school, which is all the time, please don't be afraid to say hi. I'm so lucky to have so many fans! Thank you all and god bless, Alex.

Alex Balfour, Copy Editor
