Aleja Bennett was born in East Elmhurst Queens New York by her unknown biological mother. In 1976 she was raised in East New York Brooklyn by her adopted parents who physically-verbally and mentally abused her from the age of three until she was nineteen years of age.
Alcohol became an escape for her while she associated with people-men that added to her abuse. At the age of twenty five while walking into her first A.A. meeting, she wrote her first poem titled Being Alive. From there she wrote Only the Strong Can Survive, Aleja's Beautiful Poetic Strategy in Recovery, Poems from the Heart Mind Body and Soul and Passions, Desires of Aleja the Poet.
Her next motivational short story book is titled All I Can Do Is Stand. She writes not just to share her story but to empower-strengthen-encourage people all over the world.
Her writing helps so many people as it allows her healing to process faster. Her goal is to stop the form of abuse all over the world or at least give people a desire to no longer deal with it.
She writes for all ages excluding some of the romance poems that might not be suitable for certain ages. The majority of her works are for all ages to read.
Aleja Bennett wants to start an organization all over the world called Teen Speak Out where teens always have a safe place to speak their mind and receive any services they may need for their immediate situation.
This place would just be for ages twelve through twenty only. This is to stop the cycle of abuse in the home or wherever the incident has taken place.
Now at the age of thirty seven she still continues to write words that uplift and help so many around her and over the internet. She has become a motivational speaker-poet-author and an all around good friend if you need one.
She doesn't just try to sale books, it's the message that is in her books that she wants to be delivered so that all are touched and inspired. http://alejabennett.com
