Alysse Harris
I am a beautiful, unique, optimistic, passionate, kindhearted, strong-minded and outspoken 17 year-old young lady named Alysse Harris. I was born in Kinston, NC but due to my family being involved in the U.S. Military, I was raised in various places around the world—my favorite being Germany. I currently am a senior at North Lenoir High School, where I expound on my passions of singing and athleticism by running on the Cross-Country and Track teams and singing in the school’s chorus. I’m also very passionate about social issues, so I am a member of the debate team as well. One of my most-favorite accomplishments is being a participant in the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Jabberwock Scholarship Pageant in 2016.
