My name is Allison. I am 17 years old and I am a senior at the Packer Collegiate Institute in Brooklyn Heights. I live in the Marcy section of Bedford Stuyvesant with my two little brothers and little sisters, mother and grandmother. In my free time I like to read, write, hang out and volunteer.
Interesting Fact: I lost a piece of my thumb when a door slammed shut on it
Allison spends her time in two very different Brooklyn neighborhoods: Brooklyn Heights where she works and goes to school, and Bedford-Stuyvesant (Bed-Stuy) where she lives with her family and gets teased for "talking white."
