quinceañera

A Fairytale Night for Girls in the Dominican Republic

It was a night the girls will never forget. All thirteen of them arrived at the party dressed in beautiful evening gowns, tiaras sparkling. Tonight was their quinceañera—a Latin-American tradition that celebrates a girl’s transition into adulthood on her fifteenth birthday. But what made this night so special wasn’t the fancy dresses or the party. It was what the girls were celebrating that night: the way their lives have been transformed, and the bright future they now look forward to.
