Ala is a complicated person but within her lies a wonderful person who is bursting with happiness. She Doesn't need popularity or a huge friend circle. She tends to push people away but the smart ones will come back crawling to her saving her from the misery she bought upon herself. She likes to be weird and loves singing randomly out loud even if she is not the best of singers. Ala will infect you with her originality and uniqueness, and to be frank Ala is a complete and utter freak which you will grow to lover....hopefully. With Ala you will be on a roller-coaster that only goes up!
