The theme for this year is united with our heroes.
Dina's hero was her mom for how she has always worked to provide for her family, and inspires her to do her best. She plans to attend Corban University as a pre-med student and become an ophthalmologist. Kristina was Dina's evaluator, and she talked about how she could feel how her mother has impacted Dina's life, and encouraged her to tell the story of her mom to the audience.
Jennifer talked about how she had a cousin who joined the Marines and when she heard he was coming home designed a welcome home poster as a way to show that her family was united with their hero. Her goal is to go to a university to study political science, serve in the Peace Corp, and then attend law school. Avital was Jennifer's evaluator, who said that she was so brave for coming up to speak with a smile and waving at the camera. One suggestion Avital gave Jennifer is to take a breath and look at the audience even if she isn't saying anything to engage them in her speech.
Our final speaker was Georgia who said there are many heroes in our community, from volunteers to nurses and our police. Georgia looks forward to attending Oregon Coast Community College and later transferring to Oregon State University to pursue a degree in marketing. Lauralee was her evaluator, who told her that she was in IB classes, goes to OCCC and OSU right now, and is working in marketing for her job. One of the things that Lauralee noticed is that had a lot of good examples of who were heroes and recognized those who are normally forgotten about. She said that Georgia had a great ending by saying that the world would stop turning if there weren't the volunteers who make so much happen. A suggestion that Lauralee had was to practice her speech in the mirror so she could see her gestures and facial expressions.
Kristina gave a table topic questions for the Princesses to answer. She was wondering which superpower that each of the girls would want if they could choose out of any power. Georgia's superpower is to be invisible. Jennifer's superpower was teleportation so that she can go to places like Disneyland. Aramina decided that if she had a superpower, it would be shapeshifting so she could experience being animals, being able to fly and different perspectives. Dina wanted her superpower to be healing.
