Pronouns: she/her

I am a junior, this is my third year on staff at the Pathfinder and I am more excited than ever. The newspaper has taught me that no dream is too far-fetched and there are no limits to what you can write about. My favorite quality about myself is that I am empathetic. I believe everyone deserves to be heard. I love getting to write about other people’s stories and being able to express my writing through them. I love soccer, drawing, reading, listening to music and hanging out with my friends. Outside of the journalism classroom, I play soccer at AFA Fillies in the fall and Parkway West in the spring. I am also a part of the National Honors Society, Link Crew and I lead the Mountains and Valleys Club. I hope that through my writing I can make a difference in the world and make it a better place for myself and others.

Waltzing with the chambelanes, May Trejo-Vasquez and her court perform the second dance in her quinceañera. Although everything played out smoothly in the end, Trejo-Vasquez and her court had some problems performing the waltz in the rehearsals leading to the big night, due to Trejo-Vasquez’s ball gown. “It was pretty difficult, the boys kept slipping on [the dress] in our last practice but we got it down,” Trejo-Vasquez said.

The Finale

Counting out the steps to the beat, freshman May Trejo-Vasquez and her friends practice the dances for the Quineañera one more time. This was the last of the practices before the big day, and Trejo-Vasquez’s friends who were standing in the ceremony did their part. “All my friends are going to be able to come because most of them are standing in the quince and then the other [friends who are not standing in the ceremony] I’m just inviting, they’re all going to show up,” Trejo-Vasquez said.
