In 2007, photos of Allison competing at her high School Track Meet became popular on the internet. She began to receive fame very quickly, but for the wrong reason. She was seen as a "sex symbol" and it took a toll on her personal comfort. Her father, a lawyer, began to look for ways to give his daughter the respect she deserved in the Media.
As years progressed, her fame continued to grow, but she didn't let the unwanted attention stop her from doing what she loved. She received an athletic scholarship at University of California, Berkley. Her freshman year she broke the school's record for indoor and outdoor vault. Allison continued to achieve greatness throughout her athletic career.
