Blanche Murphy - 2nd Runner-Up

People's Choice Award

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
The "Holiday Season is the best time of year! It begins with the fun and costumes of Halloween, then my birthday, and Thanksgiving reunion with family, followed by the joy of Christmastime. Then what better conclusion than ending with a fresh start, on a New Year?!

What according to you is a true friend?
My Dad said if the Maasai warrior who offered cows to "buy" me had thrown in two goats, that I would be living in Tanzania, Africa! I have herded sheep in New Zealand, and fished crocodile infested waters in Australia; ending up with a shark on my line.

How do you handle criticism?
Lush and green with abundant parks, Little Rock is a beautiful city. Our Capitol Building has been used in many movies, as it is a scaled replica of our nation's capitol. The Clinton Presidential Library also attracts visitors worldwide. I have "big city" amenities with "small town" convenience.

When was the last time you tried something new?
Everyday, regardless of season, I must put on my fuzzy socks! My hands and feet are perpetually cold, and it is a daily warming ritual. Fuzzy socks go everywhere I go!

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
I have been blessed to have traveled to four continents, but never seem to have quenched my travel thirst. Majoring in Political Sciences, the Middle East has a growing fascination to me. I desire to explore the whole world in my lifetime, and experience its vast cultures.
