The Event for Texas Creatives


Alexia Bartholomew is a unique half-city, half-country individual from Los Angeles, California and currently residing in San Antonio, Texas. She is a twin with a twin brother that includes two sisters and a younger with plenty of nieces and nephews. In her unique journey of life, she has served her country in the United States Army for seven years, visited places like Alaska, Iraq, Kuwait and even England. Despite setbacks, traumas, mistakes, heartbreaks and disappointments, she has been able to press through all that to not just write poems like “I Am Eagle, Watch Me Soar and I Can Never Say That God Stopped Loving Me”, but also was able to get her Associate Degree in General Studies at age 35 and her Bachelor Degree in Applied Science at age 39. When she is not writing books or poems, she is trying different foods from different cultures like India, China, Jamaica and the United States (except pig feet). Alexia likes to travel domestic and abroad and would even take road trips from the west coast to the east coast. “Father, Give Me The Heart” is her first self-published book and is looking forward to writing her next book.
