I am a Brazilian-Canadian writer, literary arts educator,
and education program designer dedicated to using the tools
of creative writing as a catalyst for social change and climate action.
"Alyssa exudes warmth and excitement as an educator. Alongside the students she learns with and from, she generates a safe container for imagination to flow. She makes poetry more accessible, and for that reason, everyone leaves feeling a little bit more curious."
