Miss USA Alyssa Campanella's Education Background
Alyssa Campanella is an American beauty pageant contestant. On June 19, 2011, Campanella was crowned Miss USA after being crowned Miss California on November 21, 2010. EDUinReview will now take a look at the education background of this self-proclaimed “huge history geek.”
Campanella was born in Manalapan, New Jersey, on March 21, 1990. From an early age, Campanella has prized her intellect over her beauty. She is a natural blonde but dyed her hair red after starring in a school play where she portrayed a redhead. She kept her hair the darker hue because she did not want to be stereotyped as a “big, smelly dumb-dumb,” according to Bennington Vale Press. Campanella also claims to love history and says her favorite time periods are the Tudor and Stuart periods in English history. In addition to loving history, she says she is a “huge science geek, too” and believes in evolution and the Big Bang Theory.
Campanella attended Freehold Township High School, where she maintained a 4.0 GPA and was an honor roll student every semester. She graduated from high school a year early and received scholarships to study acting for film and television from the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts in Manhattan.
Like every beauty pageant contestant, Campanella has been an active volunteer for years. Some of the charities she likes to volunteer with include UNICEF, Ronald McDonald House, and Go Red for Women. When Hurricane Katrina hit, she raised more than $2,200 for the victims of the natural disaster.
After winning this contest, Campanella will go on to represent the USA in the Miss Universe pageant. She will also tour the USA, giving speeches and doing charity work.
