She wrote her first short story in seventh grade as part of a class assignment, which further fueled her interest in writing. Her mother, Eva Jackson, was the first to notice her passion and encouraged her to continue writing. After receiving a poem on Father's Day titled "My Daddy's Flower," her father, Larkin Lee, also encouraged her to continue writing. In addition to writing, Felicia loves to participate in events that give back to the community.
