Boxing Beauty Queen

Elise Seery juggles boxing, pageants, clubs, and school.

Managing time can be hard for high school students, but Elise Seery ‘21 balances schoolwork, boxing, five West High clubs and participation in pageants.  Seery is involved in Speech and Debate, Environmental Sustainability club, Model UN, Best Buddies, and Dance Marathon here at West. Seery says that clubs have taught her how she can balance everything she does after school. Seery has participated in Dance Marathon and learned about others while doing so.

“With dance marathon I know that a lot of people have personal motives to join,” Seery said. “For me, the reason why I really wanted to pursue dance marathon was because of my grandmother who unfortunately died from cancer when I was a little girl. And from what my mom told me, we would have clicked.”

Seery has been able to meet different people through doing what she enjoys being a part of and what activities make up her life.

“In high school, I kind of just had this mindset where I was going to just do me and if other people don’t necessarily like who I was, I was fine with that,” Seery said.
