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.
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.
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.”
