Alesa Simmons was born and raised in a small-town Milledgeville, GA. She is a proud mother to her daughter, Madiyson Simmons, who has also been involved in events with TSC. Alesa has been a TSC member since 2008. “It has been an experience sharing our personal stories to reach individuals, and be a beacon of hope to women just leaving the system. Ups and downs happen on a daily basis, but if you stay focused and positive, there is room for growth to become a productive member of society.”
