Alexa was raised as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses but never baptized, and she faces shunning for a life she didn’t want and never officially even joined. Her story involves being homeless, sexually assaulted followed by a cover up, and trying to find a life of her own that ultimately has her rejected by people that she cared for. Despite the odds Alexa is working hard to rise above her circumstances to live a good life, determined not to repeat the patterns in her family.

The song that Alexa chose to represent her journey is Warrior by Demi Lovato.

Speaking of music, you can listen to the Shunned Podcast Spotify playlist here for all of the songs chosen by guests of the show.
