Miss Portsmouth - Taylor Corke
Hello, my name is Taylor Corke, and I am thankful to be named your Miss Portsmouth 2022. I am the daughter of Lorie Corke. I have an older brother, Gavin, and a younger brother, Tristan. I am a four-year varsity cheerleader, as well as a four-year show choir member. I also participate in mock trial and robotics. Outside of school I enjoy painting, antique shopping, and hanging out with my friends.
As your Miss Portsmouth 2022, I have chosen a platform that has shaped me into the young woman I am today. My platform is titled, “Coping for a Cause, Love Shouldn’t Hurt.” With this title, I have the opportunity to use my voice and shed light on domestic violence. Domestic violence isn’t just physical, it can also be verbal. I hope to educate my community and help others feel like they have a place to cope and express their feelings. Some may not be as fortunate to get out of a domestic situation and that is where I want to help. I hope to leave a positive mark in this community and further my platform beyond our community.
I would like to thank my Trojan community, faculty, and student body for giving me this opportunity to represent my Portsmouth High. I am beyond thankful to be chosen as Miss Portsmouth and I cannot wait to start this journey. I plan to represent the Trojan community with pride and grace. Go Trojans!
