Aleja Bennett was born in East Elmhurst Queens New York by her unknown biological mother July 9th 1973 at 7:23 am. In 1976 she was raised in East New York Brooklyn by her church attending adopted parents who still serves as a deacon and deaconess up until this day.
From the age of two through nineteen they physically-verbally and mentally abused her. She was tortured, starved and neglected all through her childhood.
Alcohol became an escape for her while she associated with people-men that added to her abuse. At the age of twenty five while walking into her first A.A. meeting, she wrote her first poem titled Being Alive.
From there she wrote Eleven titles, 40 Ways To Please A Good Man, Only the Strong Can Survive, Aleja's Beautiful Poetic Strategy in Recovery, Poems from the Heart Mind Body and Soul, Passions Desires of Aleja the Poet, Thoughts Deeply Rooted Within Me, Seasons With And Without Love, All I Can Do Is Stand which and finally All I can Do Is Stand Part Two, Adopted Abused And Still Standing and Unlocking The Doors Of The Spoken Word which are all Available on paper back, kindle on Amazon.

She writes not just to share her story but to empower-strengthen-encourage people all over the world. Her mission has been to lift up the depressed-broken-wounded-injured-sad-addicts-abuse victims-teens-adopted children all over the world.
Her writing helps so many people as it allows her healing to process faster. Her goal is to stop the form of abuse or at least give people a desire to no longer deal with it.
