In yet another example of how geek girls have become part of the cultural mainstream, one local geek girl is a beauty queen.
Portland, Oregon has a tradition known as the Rose Festival, complete with a parade and a court of princesses representing local high schools. In an interview with The Oregonian, Wilson High School’s Rose Restival princess, Bralee Gilday, says she likes the “nerdy stuff,” citing the 2009 Star Trek as her favorite movie.
Miss Gilday also wants to become a math teacher, calling it her favorite subject. Now we just have to keep our fingers crossed that she’ll get crowned queen!
