The “Dance Across The USA” Project
One of the projects Aly was excited and avid to participate in was the “Dance Across The USA” project. Dance Across The USA is a project aiming to simultaneously dilettante the beauty of the United States while featuring talented dancers from across the country.

Aly has been dancing since she was just 3 years old. Dance has been immensely formative of Aly's personality, values, and outlook on life. She finds that dance has made her more confident and out-going and has always been a great outlet to release all of her feelings.
Dance has always been a great way to express myself when I'm happy and sad. It's my therapy!!

She also advised fans planning to pursue a career in the social-media to prepare to get many opinions and to be careful about what they post on their accounts. “Be careful whatever you put out there, is there forever” Aly says. She encourages anyone contemplating a debut in the social-media industry to be creative, have fun, and above all be themselves.
Struggling with Social-Media Hate
Just as every influencer, Aly has struggled with the issue of social-media hate. Maintaining a positive mind-set, although challenging at times, is what has helped her remain untethered by the negativity.
Aly also emphasized that she tries to remind herself that people on social media don't know the real her. What people see on her social media is just a limited retrospective of what her life really is like. Therefore, she keeps advocating for what she believes in without letting any of the hate get to her on a personal level.
Using Her Platform to Spread Positivity
Aly finds that being given such a huge platform is truly a blessing, and she plans on utilizing her position in the best way possible. More than anything, she wants to use her outreach to promote positivity and raise awareness about ongoing issues.
A cause Aly is very passionate about and plans on advocating for in the future is homelessness. “I am very passionate about ending homelessness and using my platform to set a good example for others,” Aly tells us.
Aly also plans on using her outreach to promote positivity and self-love. She wants to remind her fans of the importance of staying true to themselves and not letting others' opinions affect their confidence. Being in the public eye, Aly has first-hand experience struggling with negativity and lack of self-confidence and wants to try her best to pass on all the lessons she has learned throughout this process to her fans.
