Brampton-born Alessandra is 20 years old and is currently attending Ryerson University in Toronto.

Alessandra is a seasoned performer with experience in a variety of musicals with several theatre companies.

When she was six, Alessandra saw Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Elgin Theatre in Toronto, which she says is still her favourite musical, and is proud to have played The Narrator in the Randolph Young Company's performance.

Alessandra says her parents have always called her a "ham," which lead them to enrolling her in musical theatre classes, which she took to instantly.

She adds that her favourite singer is Beyoncé, who she admires for the way she presents herself and her phenomenal performances.

Alessandra thinks she would make the perfect Dorothy because she'd highlight her independence and show how she is a strong role model for girls. She has two favourite songs to sing; Over the Rainbow and Home from The Wiz.

Alessandra is thankful for having a supportive family, and says they are always in her heart when she performs.
