1. What do you like most about going to Riverside Prep? I like the environment. Even though it's a small school, I feel like it makes it better for every student to interact with each other and everyone's familiar with everyone. It gives it a family feel, so if one person is not feeling well or something is going on, you feel like you can go and talk to that person because you're associated with them in some way or form.
2. What's your favorite class and why? Chamber Singers with Mrs. Young because the music is fun and her classroom is kind of like a safe haven. Everyone in there is a family and it's not just the Chamber Singers, but all the choir classes. So when you seem them even outside of school, it's like, 'Hey, I know you because we're in class together.' So it's just really fun.
3. What do you like to do outside of school? I'm in choir and I like to play sports, but also I dance. I helped start a dance team at school, the Royal Knights, this year. I'm the president of the club and next year we want to start competing and performing outside of school. I'm also on the track team. I do long jump and triple jump, and I also run the 100, the 200 and the 4x100 relay.
4. What do you want to do after you graduate? I want to be an OBGYN. Ever since I was 3, I've always been fascinated by birth and new life and things like that. It's just beautiful to see a new life being born. I really want to go to UC Davis because their medical program there is really good and it makes it easier for you to go on to medical school.

Comment from Mrs. Young: "Emmanuella exhibits great leadership skills. She is an officer of Choir Club. She is very innovative, a great encourager of her fellow classmates, and she always exhibits great maturity. She is one of the top singers in our premiere choir, Chamber Singers. She also started a dance team on campus and she does very well academically."
