After beginning her career as an Advertising Executive in NYC, Evamarie quickly realized that the path to traditional success was not what she truly desired. Armed with a newfound love for storytelling and deep desire to embark on an adventure of her own, she quit her job, moved to Italy and launched La Femme, a digital magazine to celebrate the journey of becoming a woman. Her aim is to share her story and the stories of other women trailblazing their path to live life on their own terms. She is deeply inspired by the beauty of the human spirit and has made it her mission to show women all over the world that their freedom is never out of reach.
A native of Georgetown, Guyana, Alicia has been writing since primary school and currently runs her personal blog, Where Flowers Grow, which chronicles life lessons and dabbles into her versatility in poetry, short stories, and free form writing. Her play, “Dear Diary”, was selected and featured in the MCC Theater Youth Company's 2009 Fresh Play Festival, directed by Donya K. Washington. And, she is the former Editorial Assistant of an online publication, NEWD Magazine, where she conducted interviews and composed monthly feature articles on social issues including immigration, relationships, spirituality as well as fashion and entertainment.
