Alyssa Highly plays Sally. She says she is very kind, fun and creative. In the film, Sally and I are the same when it comes to determination. In 2011, I entered my school`s calypso competition and came first. When I was five years old I started doing dance and later started doing drama with Noble Douglas (Lilliput Theatre.) Books are part of my life, they make who I am. That is why I am glad Sally`s Way was a book first! Strongly I believe that every one is unique in their own special way like Sally and the Dindial girls ! 🙂 This is my first film. I was last seen on stage in Trinidad as one of the kings many children in First Instincts production “The King and I”
