Morgan Day – West Virginia Interview by Zoe D’Angelo Nomination and Photography by Annie Simms Photography Issue 25 of Inspiring Teens Magazine
The Nomination: Fun-filled, magnetic, beautiful, accomplished, selfless…just a few words to describe Morgan Day. She is a 2019 high school graduate; a member of the National Honor Society, BETA Club, FOR Club, and the Varsity Cheer Captain. With her demanding classes and the extracurricular activities, Morgan still managed to graduate in the Top of Class with a 4.2 GPA which lead to her being the recipient of an Academic Scholarship. She will attend UC in the fall to get her BSN and plans to work in the neonatal field. Just recently, Morgan was chosen to compete in the Miss Teen WV pageant in October.
Tell us about your cheerleading career. I started cheering when I was three years old for my local midget league football team. I continued cheering for midget league until I was old enough to cheer for my school. I started cheering for my elementary school, then middle school and all the way through high school. It hasn’t always been an easy journey for me, and I believe that is what made me want to continue to push myself to be better every single year. My senior year, I had waited four years to become captain. I tried my absolute hardest to be the best role model, and leader I could be. I got chosen to be a captain and that was the best feeling in the world. My favorite thing about being a cheerleader is seeing all of the people and kids in the stands smiling and cheering along with you because then you know you’ve successfully done your job at making people believe in cheerleading and the wonderful person it makes you become.
What are some of your favorite places to travel and why? I have traveled many different places in the U.S., but there are a few that I would go back to any day of the year at any time. My absolute favorite place to travel is Florida. I love warm weather, beaches, and feeling like I have no worries. My next favorite place to travel is Pigeon Forge, TN. Just in 2019, I have visited Tennessee five different times, and I still haven’t gotten the chance to do everything there. Last but certainly not least is New York City, NY. I had the chance to visit NYC with the National Honor Society organization at my school.
Tell us about some of your volunteering opportunities at nursing homes. My experience and volunteer work at nursing homes has been one of the most heart-warming and educational things I have ever done. I learned so much from watching nurses distribute medication, give shots, and care for every single patient and not miss a beat. Just over the course of two days, the patients were so kind and loving to me and it created a bond with them that I’ll never forget in a lifetime.
How do you feel about being chosen to compete in the Miss Teen WV Pageant? I am beyond grateful to be accepted to compete in the Miss Teen WV Pageant this fall. I want to be a great role model to all the young teenage girls out there who just need a boost of confidence every now and then. I hope that this experience shows teenage girls that they can do anything they put their mind to. I am beyond blessed to even say I’m competing.
What are 3 adjectives to describe yourself? Why did you pick them? Three adjectives to describe myself would be outgoing, kind-hearted and energetic. I think that I am a very outgoing person because there is never a dull moment around me. I think I’m kind-hearted because I have sympathy for everyone no matter what their situation is. I describe myself as energetic because in order to be a cheerleader, you have to be energetic and completely fun-filled.
