Homecoming Queen Nominee: Emily Wornkey

Kimberly Mei, Staff Writer

Q: What would being Homecoming Queen mean to you?
A: It would pretty much mean the whole world to me, because though I’m not in any sports I took this really seriously because I want to show that I’m a person in the school that represents everyone. I like to be really nice to people. I like caring, and I’ve always wanted to be Homecoming Queen.

Q: Why should you be Homecoming Queen?
A: I think I deserve it because I try my best to help the school out. I try to be really nice to everyone; I don’t like being mean. I don’t like it when people are mean to me, or mad at me, so I don’t like conflicts. I know I’m already happy I’m in, but I would be above ecstatic if I became Queen.

Q: Describe yourself in three words.
A: I’m loving, caring, and honest.

Q: How would your friends describe you?
A: I would think the same. If you want to ask Ashlee, she’s like my twin, and she’s in this class.

Q: What activities are you involved in?
A: Well, I quit doing sports. I’m in NHS and STUCO. I mainly hang out with my family and my friends—I’m really family-oriented. Some people don’t like to be with their family—I’m the opposite, I would want to be with my family.

Q: What do you aspire to be in the future?
A: I actually want to be a pediatric nurse. I really like children—I’m in the Child Development Class, this is my second year doing it. I like to help people, so that’s why I want to be a nurse, and kids is just where I tend to go.

Q: What would you do if you were Homecoming Queen?
A: I would probably start crying, I probably would. I don’t know how—it’s so hard to describe—I would be so ecstatic and happy.     

From Emily’s friend, senior Ashlee Trotter:

Q: How would you describe Emily?
A: She’s a very caring person. She loves everyone, she’s very friendly, and just outgoing.

Q: Why should Emily be Homecoming Queen?
A: She is probably the sweetest person in the world, she works very hard for everything, and she’s very caring.
