Alisha began writing poetry when she was in the sixth grade. What started out as something she did for her English class quickly grew into something she loved to do, and had a great passion for. When she got into college she learned about spoken word and decided that was something she wanted to try to do. Eventually she completed her first set of spoken word style poems, and took to the stage in her college talent show. Alisha won that semester and then again, the next semester. She then went on to compete in the Northeast APCA Star talent competition, and won. That got her a spot in the final round at APCA Nationals in Orlando, Florida. It was there in March, 2017 she became the 2017 National APCA Star. Writing and performing is something she loves to do. She wants to use her gift to start a conversation about social issues, and give a voice to the voiceless.
