While finishing her final semester at the University of Texas at Arlington, Ally Long joined the Alterity team as a marketing communication specialist. Ally is currently finishing up her bachelor’s degree in English. Her passion for writing, speaking, and communication in general is what attracted her to the world of marketing.
When you really learn to believe in a product, a company, and a brand, the desire to market and share it with the world really falls into place. There is nothing static about the world of advertising or the new ways we discover to present great ideas – I think it is an exciting field to be a part of.”
My favorite quote is: “The quarrel we make with others, rhetoric. The quarrel we make with ourselves, poetry.” – W.B. Yeats
I am passionate about communication. Our ability to communicate with anyone, at almost any time, nearly anywhere in the world has opened so many possibilities. When I apply that excitement to my professional life, all I see are many new adventures.”
The autobiography of my life would be titled: My Never-Silent Brain.
Three goals on my life’s to-do list are to read every great piece of classic literature I can put my paws on until I just can’t read any more; to be successful in raising my son. It is hard to know if you are doing it right, but time will tell, and when it does, I hope he reflects my best; and travel, travel, travel. No matter how cliché of a response that is, I mean it. I want to see as many new places as I can.
Something random about me is: I am a Slytherin, and proud. (Thanks Pottermore 😉).
The best idea I ever had was to go back to school after I had my son and not give up even though life has been pure chaos for the last four years – it has been incredibly worth it.”
I’m the biggest fan of: right now, Downton Abbey. (But really, awesome television in general).
One word I would use to describe myself is passionate.”
