Perfect attendance is Alicia's hallmark; she hasn't missed a day of school since she was in the first grade. She enjoys spending time shopping and playing soccer as well as drawing and painting. Her beloved cat, Chaz, is a beautiful Maine Coon. Alicia looks up to singer Veronica Kole as her role model because of the way she handles herself, especially in regards to the issue of bullying. However, she would most like to meet another performing artist, Enrique Iglesias. Alicia is participating in her first Scripps National Spelling Bee.
