Emma Decker is a happy-go-lucky girl who constantly tests her luck. As a senior, she’s always waiting until the very last moment to do her work, and it’s astounding she hasn’t earned the title “Professional Procrastinator” yet. When Emma isn’t complaining about her school work, sleep schedule, and aching muscles and bones, she’s doing the very things that make her sore. She spins competitively with her high school’s colorguard and winterguard team that she adores bragging about. Even after all of that, she still manages to have free time that’s spent writing. Why she chooses that over napping, the world may never know. However, Emma is also known for playing in the school’s band where she picks on all of the other sections for not being as cool as she is. Spoiler alert: They’re all cooler than her, and they know it too. After Emma finishes trudging her way through high school, she’s planning on attending college and majoring in journalism. She’s not entirely sure what she wants to do with that degree yet, but what seventeen year old does? Regardless, Emma has pretty high goals. Even if she doesn’t grow a few more inches, she can still reach them with ease.
