ABOUT Alyssa

  • @alyssaokada

University of Connecticut, Senior

I really hate when…

people are rude/ignorant. Like my mom always said, “If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all.”

I major in…

Communications and I am hoping to work in a marketing and/or public relations firm after graduation.

My hometown is awesome because…

THE FOOD. Long Island has the greatest assortment of foods… bagels, pizza, sushi, you name it!

At school, you can find me…

as a proud sister of Delta Gamma and a devoted UConn Football fan!

The coolest class I’ve taken so far is…

COMM 1000 with Professor Stifano! His class was the reason that I decided to become a communications major.

My ideal first date would be…

Netflix, a glass of wine, and pizza :)

My favorite late night study snack is definitely…

CHOCOLATE!!!

If I had 24 hours left to live, I would…

spend it on a beach with endless drinks, fruits, and my loved ones. I must die tan and happy!

If I could change one thing about the world, it would be…

the amount of hatred that still exists in the world today. I hope that one day my children will grow up in a world without hatred/ignorance based off the color of one’s skin or what they choose to believe in.

If I could give my younger self one piece of advice, I would say…

to stop worrying about what everyone else thinks about you. You can’t be friends with everyone and you certainly cannot please everyone.

I’m going to be Miss COED 2017 because…

I would just like the opportunity for new experiences and new people. I would love to find a way to express what I’m passionate about with others and hopefully make a difference in my community.
