With the ups and downs in life, Alycia radiates positivity and kindness. She is incredibly ambitious and hardworking- setting her goals and reaching them: from that time in 2004 when she picked out a Christmas tree three times the size of us, we unloaded it from the car, dragged it 50 yards into our flat and put it up all by ourselves, to her studying in Belgium, AND her making Alycia Speaks happen!

Alycia has lived an adventurous life and has the lived expertise and experience to talk about disability inclusion and ways to make the world a better place for disabled people. She is a force to be reckoned with. The 15+ years of knowing Alycia has made my life so much better and added a 4-wheel sisterhood that I did not know I was missing.

Love you so much, my Shrimpy sister xx
