“I am beyond excited for this year as it will be full of opportunities, traveling, and sharing my love for IJM all around the world!”
“During my year as International Miss, I plan to share my platform “Rainbow for Kids”.”
My name is Alyssa Gallagher. I am so excited and honored to be your IJM international Miss 2019. I am 22 years old from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Pittsburgh is known as a sports city and its 29 bridges that connect our three rivers. Here are some facts to get to know me a little better......
I am a junior at California University of Pennsylvania majoring in Business Administration and minoring in Marketing. I plan to one day open my own dance studio and share my love for dance with kids.
I am actively involved with my community as I am a volunteer for Salvation Army, Pittsburgh’s Children hospital. I love giving back to my community and making a difference for younger generations!
I enjoy teaching dance, modeling, coaching high school cheerleading and speaking at community events.
With studying dance for the past 17 years my dream job is to become a Radio City Rockette in NYC. I’ve auditioned for the past 3 years and made it to the top 34 out of 410 girls. I am so excited to continue this journey as I someday hope to perform on the Radio City Music Hall stage.
During my year as International Miss, I plan to share my platform “Rainbow for Kids”. After losing my mom at the age of 15, my goal has always been to speak and help children who are grieving over the loss and death of a family member or friend just like I did. I stress the importance that even though you lost someone so close to your heart, it’s ok to still remember the fun moments you’ve had with them in the past. I plan to speak to children throughout my state, and visiting other states across the country. With a platform so close to my heart I plan to help make a difference in many young lives.
I am beyond excited for this year as it will be full of opportunities, traveling, and sharing my love for IJM all around the world!
