“Quaran’teen’ Queen!” was inspired by the historical event impacting myself and my class of 2020 peers. Social distancing requirements impacted multiple memorous activities like my 18th bithday, graduation ceremony and the senior prom. This scholarship opportunity gave me a chance to participate in a tradition that celebrates achievement and passage into adulthood. The Stuck on Prom contest was the perfect way for me to have a piece of the experience while potentially gaining funds to cover the cost of my UC college education. Quaranteen Queen exhibits the importance of following pandemic protocols while confidently remembering the importance of stopping traffic to smell the roses and spending time with the people you hold close to your heart.
