Rani Chor (12)

What are your thoughts about being nominated for prom court?

“Honestly, I am so grateful to all my friends — especially those who shared my ‘Don’t be a booger, vote for Rani’ graphic on their stories. I am super excited, mostly because the crown is super shiny, albeit a bit heavy. It is honestly an amazing way to wrap up senior year.”

What is your favorite memory of high school?

“I feel obligated to say Paw Prints Weekly, and to some extent, that is true. The people, the sports and clubs in high school are all very special to me for sure.”

What is some advice you’d like to share with underclassmen?

What is your favorite memory of high school?

I had so much fun in the freshman Battle of the Classes, so I wanted to do it again senior year since Covid-19, unfortunately, canceled the event for my sophomore and junior year. Our 12 A.M. practices in parking lots with friends and our winning dance are definitely one of my favorite memories.”

Zoe Ng (12)

What are your thoughts about being nominated to prom court?

“To be completely honest, I was surprised I had made it into prom court in the first place.

A huge part of what pushed me to run was support from my friends which I am incredibly thankful for.”

What do you look forward to most about prom?

Not to be cliche or cheesy, but centering your entire high school career around college is just more stressful and you may regret not doing more at the end of your senior year.
