Alyssa is currently working on her Master's degree in Education. She hopes to teach elementary school and write stories for children. Alyssa previously published a memoir about her experiences living with a disease.
It may be in her genes, but Alyssa chooses to fight back against a rare disease called Gardner’s Syndrome. She knows what her disease is physically capable of, and what it cannot do. It may take from her body, but it can never harm her mind or heart. Gardner’s Syndrome will never take away her ability to love, overcome, or live life to its fullest. Alyssa has chosen to go against the tide.
