Alycia’s Dominican heritage fuels her passion to amplify marginalized voices and bring about social justice. She made the move to Los Angeles after booking her debut role as ‘Aisha’ in Peacock’s Saved By The Bell. Alycia can be seen in Amy Poehler’s Netflix feature Moxie, which released March 2021.
