Haley’s favorite things
Haley’s favorite TV show is Atypical and her favorite movie is Grease. “She Used to Be Mine” by Sara Bareilles is her favorite song and her favorite novel is The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. She is most inspired by her family. Haley’s most treasured keepsake is the book collection her Nana gave her when she was little.
Besides Apple Blossom, Haley’s favorite thing to do in the Valley is getting involved and volunteering in her community, especially through theater. Her proudest moment in life was seeing her whole chapter waiting for her after placing in Extemporaneous Speaking at State. If Haley could trade places with anyone for the day, it would be her role model and FFA Advisor, Miss Jennifer Crane.
Haley feels she should represent the Wenatchee Valley because she’s been involved in the Festival before and would love to continue as an advocate for the Valley’s values.
