Super Kid

Hail to the chief: Won election as senior class president. Has been busy ever since, running meetings, working on fund-raisers and getting seniors involved in assemblies and ready for graduation. “It takes a lot of time and hard work, but it’s fun.”

Endorsed by: Sponge Bob Square Pants adorned campaign posters. Humor also took center stage in her speech, which helped boost her above two other candidates.

It’s had an impact: “I’ve grown this overwhelming love for organizing stuff. … My dream plan is to organize concerts and tours.” Organizing a Battle of the Bands for her senior project to get a taste. Plans to major in communications, hopefully at Western Washington University with her best friend.

Musical taste: “I am really into emo” – for emotional – “like Saves the Day (a band). Emo is sappy love – ‘she broke my heart,’ that kind of thing – but more rock.”

Best concert ever: Aug. 7, 2001 at Graceland in Seattle. A Vagrant Records tour with Saves the Day, Dashboard Confessional, Hey Mercedes and No Motive. Back when Dashboard was solo with an acoustic guitar, singing intimately with fans. “It was something you’d see in a movie.”

Grounded: Walks in style with a pair of equally chic and foot-friendly shoes, a suggestion from the podiatrists for whom she does filing and other odd jobs.

Cool body art: Pierced her eyebrow for her 16th birthday. Took mom a long time to get used to it. Plans three tattoos for when she turns 18 years old – her Zodiac sign (Virgo) behind her ear, a sparrow on her hip (a matching one with her sister) and something else on her foot.

She’s got that: Will pay for friends’ coffee and camping supplies, if they’re a little short. “Money really isn’t that big a deal. It probably should be, because I’m going to college next year and should be saving. But I’m in the moment.”

Will miss high school: “I know I’m crazy, but I just have so much fun.” Besides activities (that also include National Honor Society and Kiwanis Key Club), there’s hanging out with friends all day. “Plus, it’s free… I think that’s a pretty good deal.”
