HSR- this topic has been interesting to her over the past few years as her parents started a business called South Georgia Spill Response. She really enjoyed putting it together and making the scene in the middle of her booth.
Golden – 1930’s film was called the golden age of film, it was the time where the film industry transitioned from silent to sound. The main reason she chose this was because she had a history presentation on the same topic. She loves this era and history so it worked out well.
