I realize I’ve never posted anything here about me so this is going to be my first post of the day since it’s been a little while since my last posting.
Ms. Alesica Smith, known as the “Poetik Empress” to family and friends, resides in Wickliffe, Ohio, just outside of the Cleveland Metropolitan area.
Having discovered her love for writing at a young age, Alesica penned her first story called “The Duck Who Loved Rainbows” for a class project. Having put her own dreams on hold for years as she tended to family and other personal obligations, Alesica became frustrated that she was unable to share her gifts with the world.
Having overcome obstacles such as being hearing impaired, being labeled a slow learner during her early years as a child, and being told by a teacher that she could never learn another language because she could barely speak English, Alesica has compiled a book of poetry, Exhale: Words of tha Soul (Amani Publishing) that reflects the struggles, trials, and tribulations, that life often brings our way.
As a “30-Something” woman, Alesica states that, “I am thankful that God has given me another chance to share what could be my greatest moment in life, with others!”
Inspired by her three children and having almost lost her life to chronic asthma, Ms. Smith feels that all of her experiences in life have given her the strength to understand that life is too short and that writing helps her fulfill her goals and purpose in life, as well as the encouragement to pursue her other artistic talents that include drawing and painting.
Alesica is happy to be able to pursue her dreams and she hopes that you will find inspiration in her words as she shares with you her life’s journey!
