My name is Alyssa ‘Lady Logic’ Saunders. I am a Poet Emcee from Red Hook, Brooklyn. I have endured the shelter system my whole life, but being a Poet Emcee has helped me build foundations and meet people in which I have made my home. I am the recipient of a 5-year full tuition scholarship to LIU Brooklyn to study Film and Creative Writing. UAP has taught me to be fearless when it comes to my creativity. I want to be an agent of change for people unaccounted for in a forgotten genre. I want my community to know that we matter and will continue to matter without a pound sign before our names.
