      As a Simon's Rock alumnae I love supporting Rockers and their projects - and as a social worker in training and a writer, this one particularly struck a chord. Go Alexis!

      I'm so excited you want to go out and see the world. I'm a Black girl from a working class family who had the travel bug and had my first international experience as a college student studying in Florence, Italy for a year! This was 19 years ago and now I've traveled to more than 23 countries in Europe, Africa, India & Southeast Asia, along with living for 2 years in Japan! Can't wait to read your book!

      I saw your story on my FB newsfeed...I click on it to find out that you're going to The University of Manchester! I'll be studying there next semester as well : ) I also have 2 friends (fellow Smithies) who went to Bard College. The world is so small. I am inspired by your focus at such a young age. I'm not sure of my path yet, but folks like you that remind me that it is never too early or too late to follow my dreams. I would love to see you next semester!

      Alexis,

      You are such a beautiful, talented and special woman! I know you have done great things for this earth and will continue to do so. This is only the first day of your kickstarter and many have recognized the great importance of this experiential learning process. Your deep connection to the spoken and written word shines so bright. I want my children to one day sit in a classroom with you. All my love.

      -Tati
