Hey! My name's Ally, I'm 18 years old, and I live in the Chicago area. I love drawing, coding, web designing, photography, poetry, and tennis. I started drawing/painting when I was about 6 years old and have been doing it ever since. My work was featured at the Naperville Woman's Club's Art Fair and in local school's art fairs throughout all 4 years of high school. I was a member of the Naperville Fine Art League from 2015 to 2018 and I am a member of Arts DuPage Foundation (2016-present). Since 2015, I have developed an interest in photography and film making & editing and really like it. Some of my hobbies are: writing poetry, modeling, and playing the guitar.

As of 2019, I am continuing my education in the field of Computing and Digital Media at DePaul University, studying Computer Science. Starting July 2019, I am a student volunteer at the Center for Data Science at DePaul University where I'm currently exploring machine learning, computer vision & data mining.

It was an exciting experience for me to participate in the Girls Who Code program in 2016, to make new friends and improve my coding skills. It was a pleasure to work with Trisha, Grace and all the girls on our projects!


Although I have done several other sports in the past, in 2017 I joined my school's tennis team and am pursuing my interest in tennis at Five Star Tennis Center. In October, I won second place in 2nd singles at the DuPage Valley Conference.
