"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."

"When else in life are you gonna have this?"
