Meet Allie. Our paths crossed in our online media class my junior year and I am fortunate enough to have a class with her again this semester. Allie is one of the most down-to-earth people I have ever met. I have to admit that I love that she has no idea how pretty she really is, which makes her even more beautiful! Growing up in Scottsdale, I was around many girls with very high self-perceptions. So, I must say it is so nice to meet someone as talented, intelligent and pretty as Allie but also as genuine. If more “Allies” strolled our crazy world, life would be a better place!
