A Quinceañera is a traditional celebration commemorated when a young girl reaches 15 years of age and transitions from her girlhood to her womanhood. The tradition is celebrated in certain parts of the world: Mexico, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Hispanic Communities. Sherlin Morales (11) tells the story of her “Quinceañera” and her excitement for it as well as her guest’s.

“One thing I loved about my Quince was the band that we brought to my party. The banda was like no other, this banda would bring people to dance even if they were sitting down. They were living it up, very happy, and [the banda] played good,” Morales said.

Morales then explained what her dress looked like, the location of her Quince, and how the Quince entertained the people in attendance.

“My dress was from Mexico. It was green, very puffy, and sparkly with a lot of jewels. The Quince was at this venue and it was very big. A lot of people came. There were dessert tables. The band was really good and everyone was dancing,” Morales said.

Morales had the best experience at her Quince. She enjoyed it even though there were some unnanticipated accidents here and there.

“I had the best time! I liked seeing how everyone’s eyes glowed when they saw me walking out in my dress. I did have some problems though. The DJ messed up the music, but [at the end] it was a funny moment for me and my friends. Honestly, I just enjoyed it while it lasted,” Morales said.

A Quince is a fun experience to come and celebrate a young girl’s 15th birthday. From Hispanic Roots, to all over the world, traditions like these are quite an awesome experience one preserves.
