Emma Conover is a sophomore at Normal Community High School and is involved in Class Board, Student Council, and softball. This is her first year working with The Inkspot and is a staff writer.

On the weekends, I enjoy playing in softball tournaments, going for bike rides, and watching movies with friends and family.

My favorite film would have to be A Simple Favor because I love comedy/mystery movies, and Blake Lively is my all-time favorite actress.

In my free time, I enjoy playing with my dog and working out.
