Miss Shamrock 2012 - Alissa Kurke
Why Alissa wanted to be Miss Shamrock:
Being Miss Shamrock would be an honor as I have a deep love for all things that celebrate the Irish culture. From my grandfather who was once suspended from De La Salle high school for dying his hair green on St. Patrick’s Day, to my parents who would enthusiastically drink green beer any day of the week if we would let them, I was born to celebrate this holiday. I was raised by two Irish temperaments which resulted in me being headstrong, slightly stubborn, and as much as I hate to admit it, loud. I am also outgoing and never hesitate to strike up a conversation with anyone. I love having fun and lending a hand to anyone in need and being active is the only way I know to be. Being Miss Shamrock would allow me to expand my public outreach even more and representing the St. Patrick's Association and our great capitol would be a dream come true.
