Aly first encountered 1SE at work. Her boss at the time is one of the many parents who use the app to record her children as they grow up (for a similar story, check out our user profile on Paul Gi), and shared her videos with Alyssa and other coworkers. It took Alyssa a few months between when she started using the app and when she started sharing her videos on Instagram, but once she started sharing, she realized that videos made with 1SE could be used not only to tell stories about life, but also to share experiences, reflect on projects, and teach viewers about new ideas.
Aly shares monthly 1SE videos on her Instagram channel
, and also publishes her yearly videos on Facebook. This way, anyone who's interested can see the 30-second chunk of video that represents her most recent month, but those who want to see her longer-form videos (who Aly assumes will be people who are her real-life friends and family) can watch the six-minute video of her whole year.
