Q: Congratulations! How does it feel to win the title, Homecoming King?
A: I feel loved, and I feel that my self esteem has gone up with receiving this title.
This really encourages me to go and meet everyone on campus.

A: Yes. From the start, instead of choosing qualified candidates for Homecoming Kings or Queens, people only choose the names that they know.

Q: What was your first reaction when you heard your name as the winner?

A: I was completely surprised. I had felt really shy, and didn’t know what to do in that moment. I had prepared myself not to hear my name, not wanting to feel crushed if my name wasn’t chosen. I had felt really shy though, ducking down, trying to be humble—I knew I had made it on the court but I didn’t want to feel like a braggart.

Q: What does the title, Homecoming King, mean to you?

Q: If you could bring any celebrity or superhero with you to Homecoming Dance, who would you take?
A: I would definitely take Mike Conol of The Lost Kids dance company. He has the perfect body and perfectly developed muscles.
