About the Author
Before Alicia Cass went back to school at age twenty-eight to obtain her high school diploma, she had experienced life as a teenage mother, drug dealer, gang member, high school dropout, and victim of sexual, physical, and domestic abuse. But by thirty-four, Cass had earned her bachelor's degree from the University of Southern California (USC). Three years later, as a single parent, Cass earned a master of social work from USC. Cass received numerous awards and recognitions during her time at school, including the USC Black Alumni Scholar, USC Ambassador Award, and USC Trojan Recognition Award. Armed with her powerful story of overcoming obstacles, Cass has shared her tale in documentaries, local churches, juvenile halls, and colleges-including Stanford University. Cass is the founder of The Metamorphosis Experience, a non-profit organization aimed at helping women, girls, and youth that have experienced violence-related trauma, stemming from gangs and sexual, physical, or domestic abuse. Cass is a mother of eight children and has four grandchildren. She is currently a doctoral student at USC.
