At 15, Alyssa Linares is ready for her big day. Her quinceañera that is. And now thanks to a national competition organized by Verizon, her quince will certainly be one to remember. The wireless provider held a national essay writing competition in which young Latinas were asked to elaborate on why they felt they deserved to win the one of a kind “My Fabulous Quince” prize pack.
At stake were a dream Quince for 100 guests, a trip to Los Angeles to meet with Jennifer Lopez for a styling session, a private performance by 3BallMTY, a $5,000 scholarship, four Blackberry Z10 smartphones, and four $250 Verizon Wireless gift cards.
That’s exactly what Linares walked away with after being notified she was the grand prize winner. She is the first winner from Houston for the annual “My Fabulous Quince” competition.
Now let’s see if Hispanic Houston gets an invitation!
