More About Allee Williams
My name is Alexandra Lee Williams, but I go by Allee. I am a sebior at the University of Kentucky studying Inter-Strategic Communications. I am a member of Alpha Delta Pi. I am also on the committee for DanceBlue, a 24-hour dance marathon that benefits the children’s oncology clinic at the Kentucky Children’s Hospital and the university’s Relay for Life walk-a-ton. My dad was in the military, so I moved around a lot growing up, but I call Elizabethtown, KY my home. I love chips and guacamole almost as much as I love making others laugh. In my 21 years, I have made more mistakes than I could count – each of which have led me to Young Women LEAD, and ultimately, to you.
