< NICOLE DARNALL, MOUNT OLYMPUS
Nicole “Nikki” Darnall is a first time camper and new to all things journalism. She will be a first year member of her newspaper staff and serve as a floating editor. Darnall will be a sophomore at Huntley High School in Huntley, Illinois. She is a big fan of Disney as it was a big part of her childhood while growing up. Her all-time favorite song is “Friend Like Me” from Aladdin, but when it comes to playing a Disney character she would choose Belle from Beauty and the Beast. We know Darnall is going to bring her lucky magic from Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast to help this team win!
< EMILY HIGGINS, MOUNT OLYMPUS
Emily Higgins is a returning Kempa Kamper and will be a senior at Antioch Community High School in Antioch, Illinois. Higgins has been part of the Tom Tom staff for four years and will serve as the Community Outreach Director for her last year on staff. When it comes to all things Disney her favorite track is “I Just Can’t Wait to be King” from the Lion King. It’s her all time favorite movie and she claims to know every word to the movie. However, when it comes to who she would play as a Disney character it would be Mushu from Mulan.
“That little red dragon has so much energy," Higgins said. "Who wouldn’t want to shoot out flames and protect a princess?”
We’re hoping Higgins can replicate Mushu’s energy and help bring her team to a Kempa Kamp victory!
