Alicia Camacho was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. She studied live performance and since a child, she has loved telling stories, either in the form of writing, acting or films. She began writing Spines as a way to reflect on her life experiences and emotions. She then felt moved to share her experiences and hopes that someone can relate to her words and feel understood. These are the words that she wishes her younger self had known. Alicia now finds her home in Europe and continues to write about the journey life has taken her on.
