I know what you might be thinking, but let me start off first by saying I am not an Adele fan. After hearing her song so many times in the car it is hard not to get her lyrics stuck in your head.
My name is Allyson and I am a sophomore from Rochester, Michigan. Unless you are from around here you have probably never hear of it. I guess you could say we are a small town with a big personality (if you have seen pictures of the Christmas lights that are put up in the Winter then you know what I am talking about).
I have lived in Rochester most of my life with my mom, my dad, and my brother, Andrew, who is a senior at U of M. We are incredibly close and I like to take all the opportunities I get to go home and see them during the year. I have a dog, Max, who makes up a large majority of my Snapchat stories and I am currently binge watching Parks and Recreation on Netflix.
When I was in fifth grade I wrote a school winning dream career speech that I presented in front of my school district. While at that time, the dream career I had written about was not to be a writer, I realized somewhere in the midst of the assignment how easily the words came to me when I was writing about something I was interested in. It was not about the career, it was about the writing.
Since then, my interests have changed and I am now looking to major in Communication Studies with a minor in Writing (of course). After I graduate I am hoping to find a job at a Public Relations Firm. I am passionate about social media and would love to combine that passion with my love for writing one day. The possibilities are endless and I cannot wait to see where they take me.
