Senior spotlight… Emily Bigger

Every week we ask a St. Joseph-Ogden senior five questions. This week we talked to Emily Bigger.

This post is sponsored by Hoveln Heating and Cooling.

What do you want to do after high school?
After high school I plan to attend a 4-year college but am undecided on my major.

What is your favorite thing about SJO?
My favorite thing about SJO is the community. I love how invested everyone is in the sports and activities. While playing volleyball, it is a great feeling being able to hear the maroon platoon and crowd cheering loud during the match.

Who is your biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration is my mom. My mom is successful and is always looking out for others and will do anything to help. I hope to one day be able to do the same for others just as she does.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In 10 years I hope to have my own family living someplace warm while enjoying my job.

What is your favorite class and why?
My favorite class is Spanish. I enjoy Spanish because Señor Sutton makes the class interesting and is always pushing me to go above my abilities when learning the language.
