What is YHWDIY? | YourHandyWoman DoItYourself.Who is Allison Oropallo?
About Allison Oropallo: After getting a taste of what it’s like being on the other side of the camera while working on HGTV’s All-American Handyman show, of course I would love to have my own show. But right now I am more than happy progressing hands-on learning and practical education for our youth- this is extremely important to me.What is something that most people don’t know about you?
I couldn’t hear until I was 5 years old. It actually might not surprise you, I grew up doing DIY type projects & learning everything through a hands-on approach. My mind works differently than most people who learned in a conventional regard.What do you love most about hands-on practical learning and DIY projects?
DIY projects and hands-on learning builds confidence and relationships. I believe that hands-on practical learning approaches and environments can create peace through practical problem solving and practicing interpersonal relationships.
