I am pretty new to flutter, and can't figure out how to align one of my children widgets containing an image. This is what I have tried so far:

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
  return Scaffold(
  appBar: AppBar(
    title: Text(widget.username),
    backgroundColor: new Color(0xFF24292E),
  ),
  body: Center(
    child: Column(
      crossAxisAlignment: CrossAxisAlignment.start,
      mainAxisSize: MainAxisSize.max,
      mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.start,
      children: <Widget>[
        Image.asset(
          'assets/profile.png', width: 100.0, height: 100.0,
        ),
      ],
    ),
  ),
);
}

The image is staying in the center top of the screen however. How can I move it to the top left relative to the screen? Thanks.

You have centered the column, that's why everything in it is centered. Simply remove the top level Center() widget and your image will be aligned top left.

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
  return Scaffold(
    appBar: AppBar(
      title: Text(widget.username),
      backgroundColor: new Color(0xFF24292E),
    ),
    body: Column(
      crossAxisAlignment: CrossAxisAlignment.start,
      mainAxisSize: MainAxisSize.max,
      mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.start,
      children: <Widget>[
        Image.asset(
          'assets/profile.png', width: 100.0, height: 100.0,
        ),
      ],
    ),
  );
}
