"I think it was a special day for my parents. I always think that quinceañeras and those kinds of parties are always for your family."
"It was really cool to feel like you were 4 and put on a dress like this and be like, 'I'M CINDERELLA!'"
"There's nothing deep about quinceañeras. It's a fun party. I had a beautiful quince, and I'm very appreciative, and I did have a blast... That's why I danced in nine more."
"I wanted to make my parents happy ... Just remembering that I did this, and that my mother did this, and that everybody pulled together to do this ... It truly takes a village to make a quinceañera."
So, if you get a quinceañera, ENJOY IT, because life sure goes by fast.
