The Central Trend

Alysse Calabio

Alysse Calabio, Junior Writer

Alysse is a junior starting her first year on The Central Trend. She, more than anything, loves trying new things.  She's tried a profusion of diverse activities ranging from cheerleading to various martial arts. Virtually everything has piqued her interest at some point. As of recent, her topic of interest has been all things artistic: crocheting, sewing, embroidery, and, above all else, writing. So, it's easy to assume that Alysse is always working on a project of some sort—whether it be for TCT or for her loving friends and family.

Artist she is currently obessessing over: Laufey

Her favorite movie: Everything, Everywhere, All at Once

Most interesting food she's ever tried: Chicken feet

Where the Crawdads Sing marvelously weaves love and murder together

November 21, 2022
