More Info

Hello, my name is Alyssa

Let's start with what I love to do more than anything which is dance. I love to dance! It’s my passion to dance on Broadway one day.  It is my dream. I started dancing when I was three years old. I began with ballet, jazz, and tap, and now I participate in modern, jazz, tap, ballet, contemporary and lyrical. I was a student at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) for my junior year of High School. I enrolled in workshops and summer intensives for dance last summer. The few things I love about dance is the community and the way you express yourself. I also like that it helps me express what I can’t say and what I feel.

I love Broadway! I went to see five Broadway shows so far. I love the environment and I love that it’s a kind of art that lets you be you and teaches you the hard stuff that can not be taught. I love the messages it gives you about the world. I also love that Broadway shows are not afraid to talk about the issues we have in this world through a performance.

My other passion in life is fashion. I love fashion because I get to express myself through my clothes and it gives me a boost of confidence that I don’t have at school. It also shows the true me! Fashion is a way to show that I’m different and unique. 

I'm running for Debutante Queen this year to not only raise money for my school, St. Mary's Academy but to also participate in the Debutante Ball that allows me to grow as a young woman with great dreams and aspirations. 

I have a very big family, and they are my pride and joy. I want to make them even more proud of my accomplishments by representing St. Mary's Academy as Debutante Queen.  They make me happy and they make me laugh. The best thing about my family are my cousins. They are like best friends and they support me in everything I do.

I thank God everyday for my two brothers, and my mom and dad that I love so much. They believe in me and support me and also my crazy ideas and craziness all the time. My brothers are the best brothers you can ask for they often bring me food and buy me nice things. They are the best brothers because they care about me and try to learn the things I like and they also laugh at my jokes even when they're bad.  

Favorite Movies:  My dad got me hooked on the 80's! Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller Day Off, Top Gun, The Breakfast Club, Dirty Dancing, Heathers, Say Anything, The outsiders, Footloose, and Red Dawn. My favorite movies from the ’90s are Clueless, and 10 things I hate about you.

Favorite Music: My favorite artist at this time is Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, Dua Lipa, Ariana Grande, and Harry Styles. I love music that you can just dance to and sometimes feel sad too and also feel something. Music for me is something that lets me feel free to do whatever dance I want to do that day. It also gives me the courage to just sing out loud.

Final Thoughts (Lol): I’m a quirky, God-fearing, funny, movie-loving, music-loving, Broadway-loving, makeup-loving, and fashion-loving girl that loves her family and friends and always stays true to herself.

Please help me reach my goal by donating what you can to support both me and St. Mary's Academy. 

Thank You!
