Hey! My name's Ally, I'm 18 years old, and I live in the Chicago area, US. I love drawing, coding, photography, poetry, tennis, and bowling. 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 starting 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.

Starting 2019, I am continuing my education in the field of Computing and Digital Media at DePaul University.

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!

Tennis and Bowling

Although I have done several other sports in the past, as of 2016, I joined my school's bowling team. In our first tournament, we placed third. In 2017, I joined the school tennis team and am pursuing my interest in tennis at Five Star Tennis Center. In October, at the end of the season in 2017, I won second place in 2nd singles at the DuPage Valley Conference.
