Street Team Spotlight: Alyssa Pennington

For this week's Street Team Spotlight we are featuring one of our very own designers and mastermind of the Pennington Collection, Alyssa Pennington!

Name:  Alyssa Pennington

Hometown: Frederick, Maryland

Any nicknames? My close friends call me “Lyss”, but my mother will call me everything from my Aunt Jennie to my cat Leo…

Major and Year: Studio Art major with a concentration in Graphic Design, Art History minor

School: University of Maryland, Collie Park

What do you do besides Route One? I am a design intern for Bethesda Magazine this semester, I am a member of Zeta Tau Alpha, and I occasionally work at the front desk in Stamp.

Interesting Fact: I am half Argentinian and half Icelantic. What an unbeatable combination.

If you could have 3 wishes/dreams granted, what would they be? 

1.  To own a million Pembroke Welsh Corgis!

2.  To be a successful designer in NYC.

3.  To always be healthy and happy.

Favorite thing to do on a Sunday?:  I usually lay in bed and watch a hundred episodes of a show I am currently obsessed with. Right now it’s “The O.C.” (Yeah, I’m really motivated.)

Favorite drunk food: Anything with cheese as the main ingredient.

Funniest thing that has happened to you while out? Maybe not the funniest thing but--I rolled my ankle one night while wearing heels and didn’t notice until I woke up the next day. But, I still wanted to wear heels again the next night so I wrapped my ankle in pre-wrap and hot pink duct tape… Worked like a charm!

Favorite University of Maryland bar? I’m going to stay classy on this one and go with R.J. Bentley’s.

What superpower do you wish you had? I wish I could fly!

Favorite moment in R1:  The launching of my very own line, The Pennington Collection.
