Jenna Tayrien, a Taliaferro Times interviewer, spoke with Zoe Brewin about her Miss Hornet nomination. She asked questions about school, her personal life, what she sees for herself and Booker T. in the future, and what being Miss Hornet would mean to her.
Jenna: Why is being nominated Miss Hornet important to you?
Zoe: In is such an honor to represent such an outstanding group of people as a Miss Hornet nominee. Knowing that my peers were kind enough to consider to nominate me for Miss Hornet made the Miss Hornet nomination so much more important to me.
J: What are your plans after you leaver BTW?
Z: After leaving BTW, I hope to go to college in the northeast and go to medical school to become a pediatric surgeon.
J: How has BTW helped you grow as a person?
Z: BTW has given me so many opportunities, most importantly the opportunity to meet the amazing hornets that I talk too every day. I have been able to take part in a variety of things, from organizing Freshman Orientation to accompanying the Speech and Debate team to state.
J: What is your favorite part of the BTW community?
Z: My favorite part of the BTW community is how loving and accepting they have been towards me.
J: What is your favorite subject in school?
Z: My favorite subject in school is French with Mme Leonard, because we learn a little about all humanities subjects in that class. Mme has taught us about history, English grammar, and current events, while teaching us how to perfect the French language at the same time. French class demonstrates the multifaceted educational experiences of BTW.
J: What do you like to do in your free time?
Z: In my free time, I like to read, go to BTW football games, hang out with my friends, and cook.

Z: To give back to the school, I would like to help out with students getting ready for college and volunteer at BTW events.
J: Is there any advice you would like to give to underclassmen?
Z: To the underclassmen, I would say: “Learn how to prioritize and balance the things that are important to you. Make sure to do your best in school, but also make time for family and friends. Try, if you can, to find time to relax!”
J: What is a fun fact about yourself?
Z: A fun fact about me is that I am a dual citizen: half American, half Canadian.
