Campanella in one sentence: Alyssa is a gorgeous American beauty that believes in herself and teaches others never to give up; she is a passionate and active woman.
I love animals.
Cooking is one of my major passions.
Being Miss USA helped me discover new passions and to become a voice for different organizations and charities that I’ve always supported.
I don’t think I would have done anything differently, that’s always how it was meant to be.
You only live once. Go out there and do what you want to do.
I have two role models. One is my mother. She is my heroine, an idol. She never gives up and she is the smartest woman I know. She is the person I trust the most. She is a very strong, courageous woman. I hope to be like her someday. I truly respect her for who she is. I hope to be like her someday. Second one is Angelina Jolie. I admire her because she was able to make a complete 180 degree turnaround with her life. Because of her, I joined UNICEF’s U.S.
I don’t let anyone change who I am for their benefit. I’m staying who I am for my benefit.
If you give up then you are a loser basically. You’re a winner if you keep trying.
There is no stupid dream or an unattainable dream.
I like putting a smile on people’s faces.
Unfortunately you can never take words back.
