Alexis Cavagnaro, a junior at Skyline High School, is Issaquah Teen USA. Alyssa writes:
I firmly believe that "each one of us is the sum total of every moment we have ever experienced." I am the middle child of two brothers at home. As a junior at Skyline high school, i enjoy boating, skiing, watching basketball games, and making dance videos with my best friend. Our family sponors a kenyan child through our church, so in the future i am planning to do mission work in Kenya. Remember that your outlook is everything, so take on the day!
