However, she didn’t actually start focusing on acting until she was in college.

2. She Was A Bartender For Several Years

4. She Loves Nature

There are plenty of people who cringe at the thought of spending long periods of time outdoors, but not Aliyah. She has lots of love and appreciation for nature and spends as much time outside is she can. Whether it be hiking, exploring, or simply relaxing at the beach the outdoors is Aliyah’s favorite place to relax and recharge.

5. She Studied Kinesiology

Despite becoming interested in acting at an early age, Aliyah also developed an interest in kinesiology.

In her mid 20s, a friend invited her to take an acting class and she realized that acting was what she wanted to do.

6. She Loves Self Help Books

Aliyah is a big believer in the importance of self love and growth and she spends a lot of time reading self help books. One of her favorite books is The Five-Second Rule by Mel Robbin.

Positivity is one of Aliyah’s top priorities and she’s always made it a point to see the bright side of things. While talking to My Devotional Thoughts she said, “I love my job and I love all the projects I work on and I love all the people I work with, but the main thing I’m working on is spreading positive energy and love and light in the world. I think the main way I do that is through my own self-expression because not all the roles I play portray those kinds of stories. I don’t feel I need to talk about any specific jobs or roles. I’m just excited about people loving themselves more.”

9. She Likes To Stay Active
