But Alejandra Campoverdi also has a long and highly accomplished career as a government official and executive. She was an organizer for Latino issues starting in high school, and after graduating with a journalism degree from USC, she got an MS from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.
After Harvard, Campoverdi became a top official for the Obama administration, focusing on Latino outreach. She eventually left that position to become an executive at Univision. Later, Campoverdi went on to help found the millennial TV and online network Fusion.
How Did Alejandra Campoverdi Make Her Money
Alejandra Campoverdi was extremely poor when she was young, having a single mother who earned very little money. However, she used her modeling career to pay for her education.
Surprisingly, Campoverdi’s modeling career is likely to have made her only a small amount, even though she did some prestigious shoots, like the one with Maxim. Maxim generally only pays a few thousand dollars for photoshoots.
Like most models, Campoverdi is estimated to have made at most $50,000 per year from modeling.
However, Campoverdi then went on to be a top official in the Obama administration. As the first ever Deputy Director of Hispanic Media, she would have earned around $150,000.
Much of Alejandra Campoverdi’s money was earned during her time as executives at Univision and Fusion. TV executives earn several hundred thousand dollars — and given that Campoverdi helped found Fusion, she would have earned a lot from that deal.
