About the Character
Hello, a tie is not winning. It's like winning with an asterisk on it.
It's about valedictorian. And everybody knows whoever is voted president of the honor society is a shoe-in for valedictorian. It's like the Golden Globes, for God's sake.
I think we all know why Samantha Charles got the gig. I mean. She is in a wheelchair. She is ethnic. It's the double whammy.
They're just jealous. Because I'm smarter and I'm prettier and I'm going places they won't get in sniffing distance of.
Well, it's not like I was given an interview cause everybody knows I'm the big bad white person and you're the sweet little innocent girl in the wheelchair.
I am a nice person, people. I am nice.
People are what matter. They are what make life worth living.
I gave one speech, bla bla bla, and now I think I'm a shoe-in for valedictorian. It's the prodigal son syndrome. You know what, let's meet later and strategize. You and I, Miss Cooke, we're a team. We're going all the way.
