Alexandria Marie Bugaj (who usually goes by Allie) was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio, and was adopted at a young age. Allie was born Feb. 13, 2001, and is now 18 years old. In May 2019, she graduated from high school at Toledo Early College, and in the fall of 2019 she will be starting her journey toward a Bachelors of Arts in creative writing with a minor in journalism. To be able to tell her life story means a lot to her, because she wants to be able to make a difference in people’s lives. This is her story told as though from a fairy tale…
My Journey to College
During the summer of 2019, Midstory’s college interns from all over the U.S. came together with incoming freshman at the University of Toledo and participants in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion’s Multicultural Emerging Scholars Program. We at Midstory believe in the power of stories, and in bridging gaps by talking about what unites us all as humans. In a multi-week collaborative effort, the students produced mini-projects based upon their own stories as they start their college careers here in Toledo. Because of the personal nature of this narrative, the views and opinions expressed are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect Midstory's views.
I love that story I’m proud of you good luck in life
