Today we sit down to learn more about Ally Cannon, GoAbroad’s new Social Media Intern.
Tell us about yourself and your position at GoAbroad.
Hi I’m Ally Cannon! I am a Junior at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, I but grew up in Fort Collins, Colorado. I am studying Advertising and Marketing and am the Social Media intern here at GoAbroad.
What is your favorite restaurant in Fort Collins, why?
It depends what I’m in the mood for! I love Beau Jo’s, Big City Burrito and Cheba Hut. They are all pretty classic “Fort Collins” restaurants that have great food and a fun atmosphere.
Where would you live if you could live anywhere in the world?
I will be studying abroad in Sydney, Australia next spring and have a feeling I will never want to leave! I love Colorado and the mountains, but the beautiful beaches and carefree, relaxed lifestyle are what draw me to Australian culture.
If you could play any character in Gossip Girl, who would you play? Why?
Blair Waldorf without a doubt. Because she is fearless and fabulous. (Blair + Chuck forever)
Where is your favorite place to ski in Colorado? Why?
There are so many amazing places to ski in Colorado it is hard to choose! However, if I had to pick I would say the Mary Jane section of Winter Park. I have been skiing there since I was little and know the park like the back of my hand. I like being able to explore the back bowls and tree runs with no fear.
