She’s a dance captain for the Royals’ colorguard. She plays the bassoon and her favorite holiday is Christmas. Her favorite “family vacation” was going to Seattle with her band family.
Long story short, she’s Aileen Khuu.
What are your hobbies?
I do a lot of different forms of art. In school I’m involved in band, colorguard and art. Outside of school I used to do competitive figure skating, but now I just do it more for fun.
What’s your favorite color?
I actually don’t have a favorite color, but if someone asks me, I always just say blue so they don’t bug me about not having a favorite color.
Morning person or night owl?
I’m definitely a night owl.
Is there anything you wished would come back into fashion?
I don’t know if trench coats were ever a thing, but I love big coats like those.
Do you collect anything?
I don’t collect anything as of now, but when I was little I used to collect rocks and I still have my little rock collection.
What do you want to accomplish this school year?
Junior year is considered the toughest year so I’m trying my best to pass all of my AP exams and maintain all As in my classes. Some nonacademic goals I have are making state for band, scoring a 5 for my art portfolio and continuing to get stronger on weapon in guard.
What are you most passionate about?
I’d say I’m most passionate about all the different forms of art.
What’s the worst gift you’ve ever received?
When I was little, my mom bought me one of the new Littlest Pet Shops with the new ugly design for my birthday and I hated it.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
In 5 years I hope to be in my last year of college, tring to get into some kind of art field.
What’s the longest you’ve gone without sleep? And why?
I’ve gone at least 22 hours without sleep from procrastinating big time on a project. Still got an A on it though.
