Insight: Since my Dad was diagnosed with cancer in 2011, I realized too many people have, can, or will relate to my experience. So, being a writer, I finally decided to utilize my written voice to reach out to anybody who will feel a bit better knowing there's a place out there as honest and real as your own. I feel as though this journey has to be worthy of something, so I am writing it all down and sharing it with you. Sunlight: My name is Alicia. People call me a ray of sunshine. Coincidentally, I am obsessed with the sun, and anything relative to it. I am also a poet, so you will find my share of poetry here as well. You will also find my intricate thoughts and experiences and how I feel about being a human. I hope this reaches you and brings you a tingling, "ME TOO" and makes you feel a little stronger, more empowered, and less strange but most importantly, inspires you to curate and nurture the message you have to share with the world. Honestly speaking and truly being heard is the most fundamental difference you can make. We are our voice. So let's make that a pact, yeah? I am happy you're here. Let's sunbathe.
