St. Pete native and current USFSP student Alexia Perry is not your average college kid. She has always had a heart for the homeless community and in order to put her feelings to action, she launched Trusting the Process. In 6 short months, this innovative and nimble charity organization has already partnered with the City of St. Petersburg, CASA, Family Promise, and several local churches and shelters to help advance a common mission to change the homeless community for the better. Alexia frames her efforts with respect and realism, and uses public outreach, creative artistic displays, and face-to-face connections to spread encouragement, positivity, and a fresh outlook on this difficult topic.

Spare Some Change? As part of a global series on TABOO, Alexia will be speaking about her own experiences with homelessness and how she uses creative activism to shift perspectives on our city's biggest taboo.

Anyone who is kind, genuine, loving, awkward, or an outcast. I admire these people most because it takes character to be any one of those!
