Alyssia Duda took home the title of Miss Windy City Outstanding Teen 2023 at the Miss Chicago pageant on Saturday, January 7, 2023. The young ballerina also won the Peyton Newman Talent Award. Alyssia was crowned by last year’s winner, Jeneen Alsamsam, at the Irish American Heritage Center in Chicago, Illinois.

“I’m super excited to be Miss Windy City Outstanding Teen,” Alyssia told Chicago Southsider during a live interview after the pageant. “This is my first pageant and this has been an exciting experience.”

Alyssia may be new to the pageant scene, but her talent performance proves she’s put some time into developing her craft as a ballerina. Since putting on her ballet shoes at the age of 3, she’s studied Vaganova, Classical, Cecchetti and Balanchine and has been part of The Joffrey Ballet’s The Nutcracker. Alyssia has turned her ballet passion into a nonprofit, Alyssia’s Dream, and a book so that she can expose others to opportunities in ballet through her story.

Alyssia will represent Windy City in the upcoming Miss Illinois Outstanding Teen competition that will take place at the Marion Civic Center from June 6-10, 2023. Her sister queen, Imani Muse, the first Black and plus-size Miss Illinois Outstanding Teen with the Miss America Organization, won the title of Miss Windy City 2023 and will also compete at the state pageant.
