Alessia Antoine (she/her) was born and raised in Miami, Florida. Antoine was born in 2000 and during her early childhood shared a home with her extended family. Antoine attended high school at Dr. Michael Krop Senior High. During her high school year Antoine worked babysitting jobs and participated in robotics club. In 2018 Antoine moved to Chicago to attend Columbia College Chicago to study filmmaking. Antoine was excited to move and to attend the collection due to the diversity of the student population. As the coronavirus pandemic worsened in March 2020, Antoine was forced to evacuate her dorm and move back to Miami to finish the spring semester. Online learning affected Antoine’s motivation in her schoolwork and being back in Miami made it challenging to participate in school. In the fall of 2020, Antoine returned to Chicago and moved into her first apartment off-campus in the South Loop.
