She escaped her hometown to study theatre performance at the University of Southern California, and has since pursued an adventurous life in the arts, living and working as a bicoastal actor and writer.
After receiving her BFA in Acting from USC, Alica studied Theatre Performance at the CAP21 Conservatory in New York City and apprenticed at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in Williamstown, Massachusetts. Alica is currently pursuing an MFA in Writing for the Screen and Stage at Northwestern University.
