Zephyrus: What does it mean to you to be on Homecoming Court?
Emma Seymour: I am absolutely honored! I feel being on court means you’re revered by your peers, and that people admire you for being outgoing. It’s definitely flattering, because there are so many amazing people at this school.
Zephyrus: In what activities are you involved?
E.S.: I have been a swimmer for six years. I swim on the high school team and I am a part of the Edina Gators club. I am also a part of HaZamir, an International High School Jewish Choir. This group has members from throughout the United States and Israel, and each year we perform at Carnegie Hall or Lincoln Center. I also volunteer at the Children’s Hospital, I am a French Club officer, and I am in Concert Choir.
Zephyrus: Who is your role model?
E.S.: My role model is my Grandma Mimi. She taught me not to care what other people think, and she inspires me to pursue whatever it is I am passionate about.
Zephyrus: What’s your most embarrassing Homecoming story?
E.S.: Definitely this week when the Student Council woke me up at 5:45 to tell me I was on court! I wasn’t wearing pants!!!!
