Alicia Jay has overcome many challenges to stand tall in her truth. From bullying to depression, she has used every roadblock to build a bridge to empower herself and others.
As a teen, Alicia endured ridicule for both her race and her height. She believed the lies and for many years hated who she was. Over time she built her self-esteem, chose the narrow path and now shares her faith-built story with anyone that she can. She created TallSWAG.com to show others how to stand tall every day, in every way.
Alicia is a writer, entrepreneur, speaker, TV personality, model and designer. Most recently she shared her story as a new cast member on TLC’s hit show, My Giant Life.
The charity I would like to showcase is Hands of Love and Caring Hearts. It’s a new organization that feeds the homeless in West Oakland. It’s an emerging avenue of change in Oakland that I am honored to help in any way that I can.es.
