My name is Alicia. I started playing drums by ear young, I went to W.O Smith Music School for 1-2 years & I played for church until my dad didn't allow me to. He kicked me and my older sister out of the house for not following his rules when we were 17 and 18. We both worked a 9am-5pm and got support from our friends. When I could afford classes I paid drum instructors in Gwinnett county GA for help. Before and during the pandemic, I made and still make monthly donations to the homeless and unfortunate to cover their housing and food costs.
