In a world where there's so much negativity, our Tuesday's Child today is determined to exude positive energy.

Surrounded by unique jewelry, inspired by artifacts collected around the world, 16-year-old Alicia carefully carves out her own original design.

Drawing on the expertise of jewelry designer Jessica Ricci. Alicia approaches this project with the same attention to detail that she gives every assignment. And she wants her creation to have meaning: Hope-- a message from a girl in foster care who has lost hope in the past.

"Just recently I've had hope because I am able to do things and advocate for what's in my best interest in finding a home, and a family who will love and care for me."

And now, her creative design in the wax mold will be sent out to be made into a pendant.

Not only is Alicia a great artist, she been writing her autobiography for about two years. Her writing and example kindles positive energy in other foster children.

"I have inspired my friends to write their own books and they look up to me to be a positive role model," Alicia said.
