The World According to Ally

All About Ally

Hey friends my name is Ally. I am a twenty-two-year-old, recent graduate of The University of Kansas. Upon graduating, with a degree in Elementary Education, I decided to combine two of my passions; teaching and traveling.

I am currently residing in the seaside city of Netanya, Israel as a 2016-2017 Masa Israel Teaching Fellow.

My goal for the future is to continue traveling around the world, learning about new cultures, and putting off the 9-5 for as long as I can.
