May 2018

Spelman Graduate Alexia LakemanAlexia S. Lakeman, a South Florida native, was drawn to Spelman College because of its reputation for producing innovative, Black women leaders. The English major was a member of Spelman’s Honda Campus All-Star Challenge team and was inducted into the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, Alpha Lambda Delta, and Phi Beta Kappa. 

Lakeman anticipates continuing her education with the hope of becoming a professional screenwriter. Her creative works portray the lives of immigrant families as a testament to her Jamaican parents and her diverse cultural upbringing. Her desire is to provide the perspective of those seen, but rarely heard, within her work. When Lakeman is not working on her storytelling, she enjoys playing guitar, watching movies, and perfecting recipes.
