Alyssa loves soccer and considers herself to be a tomboy who has an obsession with cars. She said: "I love cars, especially vintage racing and muscle cars – you can't beat an old Ford Mustang." She also like to pose on them, obviously.
Alyssa was signed to Wilhelmina Models and moved to Miami after school to further her career in the industry. She said: "Ever since it had kind of been an ongoing thing. I've been like a gypsy living out of a suitcase for four years, travelling, and next thing ... I was Miss July for Playboy."
