Introducing Alyssa Wynne

Downey High School student Alyssa Wynne is an ambitious writer who avoids laziness like the plague, already shaping up to turn her goals of attending a four-year university and becoming a successful journalist into a very possible reality. Wynne's plans for her future explain her great enthusiasm for the internship at The Downey Patriot; however, her enthusiasm for other interests, such as soccer and politics, is proof to be shown that Alyssa is a hardworking individual as a whole. After playing the challenging sport of soccer for over five years, seventeen year-old Alyssa Wynne finds that she enjoys the fierce competition of the game and the opportunity to receive a natural high from pushing herself to her limit. The political world draws in Wynne as a journalist eager to meet those who are changing the world, and write about the changes that mark the progress of society. Although this teenager may differ in her interests and goals for the future, Alyssa shares common fears of the dark and bugs, and common loves of spending time with friends and attending the happiest place on earth: Disneyland.
