Allison (Ally) King

Bio: My name is Ally and I am so excited to serve as your Communications Co-Chair for this year! I am a 2L at Seton Hall University School of Law (go Pirates!) and I studied at High Point University where I received my Bachelor's in History and a Master's in Communications and Business Leadership. We were so fortunate to have healthy foods on my campus, but the surrounding area was not as lucky. High Point, NC is an area with unequal access to healthy and delicious food. Through my sorority and our philanthropy, Fighting Hunger, we were able to make an impact in the community and help serve our neighbors through food. This is when I became passionate about access to food. I want to focus my career in International Development focusing on access to food. There are so many people around the world without access to what we take for granted every day. I joined FLSN to learn more about the issues from a multifaceted approach and to engage with people who share my passion for access.
