Alec Aguinaldo is a Freshman at SUNY New Paltz and plans on getting his Masters in Adolescent Education with a focus on History. He was born in Stony Brook, New York, and graduated from Ward Melville Highschool. Living around historical sights, Alec grew a passion for history and loves to get his hands on new topics. He’s influenced by his family and friends’ support and the drive to be a hard worker just like his family.

Alec has wanted to teach history to inspire future students he will have just like how his teachers have influenced him. His most memorable teacher was his 8th grade U.S. History teacher Mr.Fern. Outside of his passion for history, Alec enjoys spending time at home with his cats. In his spare time, he flies remote control airplanes and cooks. He also works at his local movie theater where he handles the cooking, customer service, and cleaning.
