How did it feel when you heard your name being called for Prom Queen?

How was your prom experience this year ?

“I had so much fun and really enjoyed spending the night dancing and taking pictures with all of my friends. I would definitely call it a ten out of ten experience.”

“My slimes and Sandra Pan! She is my 4lifer and she literally helped me shove contacts into my eyes an hour before we had to get ready for the dance, so I am super thankful for her.”

How have you been feeling throughout these last few days of your high school career? 

“I have been feeling melancholic and satisfied; I am glad that I got involved with everything our school could offer because I got to experience countless memories that I know I would not have been able to find anywhere else.”

What have been some highlights of your high school years?

“Some highlights of my high school years have just been coming back from quarantine and expecting nothing out of high school but ending up with so many new friends and stronger bonds than I had before the lockdown. From the return of the dance team and getting to compete and perform again to planning and setting up events with ASB—there are just too many memories to name that have made my high school experience so unforgettable.”
