When Ally is not spending her time at school or cheer practice, you can find her riding around on her four wheeler or driving around in her Monster Truck.  She has been doing competitive cheer since she was 5 years old, but is definitely not afraid of getting dirty or racing around on her pink four wheeler. Ally enjoys meeting new people and traveling around the country.  She loves just about any type of project that consists of creating things such as sewing, art, or rainbow looms.  The best part of her creations is that she loves to give them to others as gifts. Ally’s favorite part of driving Monster Trucks is being able to spread autism awareness and stop bullying.  She looks forward to driving her Monster Truck in a city near you!
