Allyson’s passion for languages and cultures grew after participating in a ten-month exchange program to Spain in High School. In college, she wanted to challenge herself with a critical language and Arabic has such a wonderful culture and history that her decision was made easy. Allyson is interested in International Relations and is a recipient of AROTC Merit scholarship. She loves traveling and interacting with foreign cultures as well as playing sports. She plans on commissioning into the US Army as an officer upon graduation.
