Alex Lecis - Sardinia, 1990. My journey starts in the middle of the Mediterranean, after leaving my home at 18 years old and moving to London. Currently, I'm opening my new Interior Design service, as well as launching a new clothing line. I am still in the process of discovering how to get out of my life's history and entanglement, and what really works for me. I know I have gone through a lot, but I also recon my achiements so far. Since all the traditional ways have seemed to be in vain, I love to share what worked (and still works) for me.

An ACE (Adverse Childhood Experiences) score is a tally of different types of abuse, neglect, and other hallmarks of a rough childhood. It goes from having a score of 1 (1 ACE) to 10 (10 ACEs).The higher you go, the higher your chances of developing the following, in your adulthood:- alcoholism- drug abuse- addiction- dysfunctional relationships- severe anxiety- physical and mental problemsI would take this opportunity to host a talk about my life, and what’s it like to live a 28 years old life, with an ACE score of 8.My background, my story, my vulnerability and healing work (still in process).
