Gabby Siqueiros,'15, dances alongside her dad to De Nina A Mujer by Julio Iglesias, at her Quinceanera, Sept. 1.
Siqueiros partook in a traditional fifteenth birthday party for a Latin American girl. These parties mark the transition from childhood to young womanhood. Quince's usually consist of a church service followed by a reception. Siqueiros
combined both aspects into one having her pastor James Paige from El Encino speak at the venue.
"I was really excited beforehand," Siqueiros said. "Although, right before I was supposed to go out I got super nervous. We combined the "church service" aspect of a Quince into the reception because we thought it would be to hard to transfer people from one place to another. There were so many things that could have gone wrong that day but they didn't. Also, dancing with my dad was amazing. It was really great to see the smile on his face."
Many students from FC participated in the reception and where they ate, watched a slideshow of her childhood and danced.
