"I'm excited to join a brand that inspires women to celebrate who they are and what makes them unique," said Aly. "From my mom to the 1996 Women's Gymnastics Team and many more, there have been so many positive women who helped me realize and achieve my dreams. With fashion being a huge interest and passion of mine, I am excited to work with PANDORA and bring some new perspective from the gymnastics world."
