Emilie Bohorquez


What year did you graduate?

Where are you living now?
Currently living at home with Mom. It’s the best! Plus she won’t let me leave. Lol.

What do you enjoy doing?
Binge watching Parks and Rec on Netflix! Just kidding, though I do love to watch Parks and Rec. I really enjoy traveling and going on mission trips. I’ve been to Mexico, Brazil, and Panama in the last year and a half , I absolutely love to be in other countries, immerse myself in the different cultures, and help people while experiencing their way of life.

What did you do in high school?
In high school I was involved in yearbook for two years which I enjoyed very much and learned a lot from. I was also a part of Raza Unida and attended so many Leadership events that people thought I was a part of it even though I wasn’t; I simply liked to be involved in all school events. And there was never a day you wouldn’t find me in the counseling office because we all would rather hang out with them over everyone else. I still miss them all the time: Mr. Morales, Ms. Torres, Ms. Menendez, Ms. Cervantes, Ms. Maldonado, Ms.Watson and Ms.Booth are some of the best people in the world. We still love y’all!

What are you doing now?
Finishing up at CSM and working on my AA-T, Associates Degree for Transfer, and hopefully I will be moving on to another college in Fall of 2016 to work towards by BA in Sociology. Also working at Mimis Cafe and Levi’s Stadium. Come say hi!

What surprised you about life after high school?
How scary it can be. Scary because I am becoming an adult and I have to do stuff for myself because there’s no going back. But I’m thoroughly enjoying becoming independent and realizing that I can do it yourself.

Any advice for current bearcats?
Have fun. High school was one of the best times of my life and it sucked for me to hear when my classmates only talked about wanting to get it over with. Don’t stress or fuss over everything, just enjoy the time you have while you have this freedom. Become cool with all the staff because it makes the experience 1,000 times better and go to A LOT of school events because you’ll regret it if you don’t. Continue to get to know yourself and what interests you. Fourteen to 18 years old comes with a lot of change, so embrace it! And enjoy the free textbooks!
