I was hosting this event at GiGi’s Music Cafe called The Lip Sync Battle ….and one of the participants of the battle was Alecia Unique. She performed every time we had an event and brings her family along to join her. From that I knew she had a great spirit….but little did I know…great spirit is an understatement. Got to know her more and this is what I found out.
Alecia has resided in Miami, Florida for over twenty five years after migrating from Jamaica at a very young age. She holds an Associate of Science in Medical Assisting, a Bachelor of Science in Health Services Administration and currently pursuing a degree in Psychology. Alecia is both a model and actress who has already graced the stages of numerous fashion shows and has been featured in various magazines, commercials and is also an experienced stand-in/body double for athletes such as Serena Williams and Alysson Felix.
As a former foster child who grew up in the “system” until aging out at eighteen years old, Alecia has first hand knowledge of what it’s like for youth growing up in foster care. After participating in various charitable events, she created Sadie’s Daughter, Inc. to give back by connecting youth with positive members of their community, provide support, promote youth self-esteem and introduce them to things outside of their current living situation. She works closely with at-risk youth in the Miami-Dade county community.
So as you can see….She is God’s Response to a lot of kid’s prayers. Help!!! In many forms. For more info on this help…..She will be live on air with me January 5th at 9:30pm on Yopodner.com Radio to give more details as to how she got to the place she is now. See you guys soon!!!
