2017 Contestant Spotlight: Alyssa Ceasar

VividDream-15

Alyssa is a senior Psychology major from Lake Charles, Louisiana.

She is the Assistant Director of Organizational Outreach for LSU Student Government and the Recruitment Chair for her sorority, Pi Beta Phi. She also works as a Research Assistant within the LSU Department of Psychology.

Alyssa faced her biggest fear and went skydiving last year. Also, she says that her dad comes from a family of 12 siblings, so she has over 100 cousins.

She enjoys traveling with friends and family, meeting new people, attending any LSU sporting event, face timing her Schnauzer, Bently, reading, and promoting literacy with her Pi Phi sisters.

Alyssa wanted to participate in the pageant as a way to advocate for the philanthropic organizations she is a part of and to serve as a positive role model for young women on campus and in the Baton Rouge community.
She says that deciding to participate in the Miss LSU-USA Pageant has taught her how to step out of her comfort zone, continuously push her boundaries and limitations, and grow as a person.

Through the Miss LSU-USA Pageant, Alyssa hopes to gain a better sense of self and lasting friendships. She also hopes to have an experience that will allow her to grow as a person and one that will push her to continue to strive to be the best version of herself.

She is most looking forward to volunteering at St. Lillian Academy. In the past, Delta Zeta and the reigning Miss LSU-USA have hosted a mock pageant for the students there, so that would be the first thing she would like to do as Miss LSU-USA.

Alyssa would love to use the Miss LSU-USA platform to raise awareness about the effects of drinking and driving and ways to ensure the safety of students on campus. This is very important to her, as she recently lost a friend to a drinking and driving accident. Additionally, LSU Student Government has given Alyssa the opportunity to be involved in We’re Committee Week and speak out to organizations on campus about mental health awareness. She says, “I would love to continue to advocate for mental health and ways to end sexual violence on campus on an even larger scale if chosen to be Miss LSU-USA.”
