Brooklyn, New York, United States
Alyssa is a passionate bridge builder and mediator. She is the product of a badass single mother and a conservative Christian upbringing. She is a graduate of an evangelical Christian university's most liberal program of study, an alumni of a Catholic volunteer corps where she lived in community with nuns, and an active member of a community band in New York which seeks to use music to create a safe space for the LGBTQIA community. She works at a non-profit in Brooklyn as the manager of an immigrant services program and will be pursuing her interest in law come fall 2016. With each new adventure, she collects stories from the myriad of people she comes in contact with. Her ultimate goal is to use the power of listening and story to bridge the gap between head and heart.
