Alysa Liu was born on 8 August 2005 in Clovis, California., USA. She went to Chinese school for three years. Later she attended the Oakland School for the Arts which offered emphasis in figure skating. That time she started missing too much school due to traveling to competitions, she began homeschooling at her father’s law office in between practices. Liu used the same online program that other skaters, including fellow Bay Area skaters Karen Chen and Vincent Zhou, have used.
She was born to multi-ethnicity parents in Clovis, California. Her father is Arthur Liu, who is an attorney and immigrated to the U.S. from a small mountain village in the Sichuan Province, China in the 1990s at the age of 25, after earning degrees in China.

She started skating at the age of five, when her father, a fan of Michelle Kwan, brought her to the Oakland Ice Center. Later she started taking group lessons with her coach, Laura Lipetsky. She began training her at the age of 5½ years. In 2017 Laura sent Alysa to the University of Delaware’s ice rinks for a biomechanical analysis researchers have created to help elite American skaters improve their jump techniques.

Her short program included a split jump into a 3Lz-3T combination, which was ruled under-rotated and a 3F. After the long program, Liu fell to 4th place, where she landed two triple-triple combinations but did not earn sufficient program component scores to retain her narrow lead. Unfortunately, she did not come in the world Junior Championship 2018 due to age issue. But she took apart in the Challenge Cup 2018 and she able to won the silver medal.
