I’m Ally, a 20-something college studentĀ on Florida’s Gulf Coast and am pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Studies, but I have my Associate’s Degree in Advertising and Marketing Communications. I believe in balancing work and play to be successful in college, and that there is no better way to achieve that balance than by living at the beach. There is always sand in my shoes and sunshine on my face, but also books in my bag and a pen in my hand.
