And, again, the hope back then seemed boundless as her loved ones described the girl in present tense. “Sierra is a loving friend, sister, daughter and inspiration to everyone who has gotten the chance to meet her. She is a confident teenager who stands up for not only herself but others as well. At times she may put on the tough girl act but really she is a very compassionate and motivated young girl.

Most of all, Sierra can make almost anyone laugh and loves being a goof. She is a sophomore in high school and still has so much to contribute to this world, so let’s bring her home!!!”.

Wearing a silver reboso, or shawl, covering her shoulders, Tiffany Galaviz, 15, walked into a Los Angeles church on the arm of her chambelan, or escort, as a mariachi band played a hymn during her quinceañera Mass. For most of her life, Tiffany has been involved in the traditional Mexican dance, ballet folklorico, and singing rancheras with a mariachi band. When it came time to have her quinceañera, she knew she wanted to have elements of both in her celebration.
