About Me

Hey! My name is Aly.

I am a college student majoring in Biology, and I love it. Aside from science, I am passionate about writing. I started this blog to pursue that passion. I am an avid reader, journaler, beginner guitar player, goal setter, dog lover, and Disney/Marvel/DC Comics fan (I may or may not be in love with The Flash).

On Welcome to Aly’s World, you can expect to find posts about college life, organization, and self improvement. Some of my most successful posts are:

Welcome to Aly’s World exists to help you become the best version of yourself that you can be. I believe the continual journey of self improvement is not the belief that you will never be good enough. Rather, it’s the belief that everyone has an untapped potential that contains the power to contribute something great to the world, and improving yourself is the key to tapping into that potential. My hope is that through these posts, you can continually better yourself and become the best you you can be.

While you’re here, I hope you learn something, whether it be a self improvement technique or a goal setting tip. I want this place to be focused on the sharing of knowledge: from me to you, and from you to me. A “two way knowledge street”, if you will. So please don’t hesitate to share your thoughts with me through leaving comments on posts or through e-mail. Getting feedback from readers always makes my day!

Read on, and Welcome to Aly’s World!
