Homecoming Candidate: Yulianna Arzate

Homecoming+Candidate%3A+Yulianna+Arzate

From being involved in ASB and Interact since she was a freshman to joining Key Club this year, Yulianna Arzate, a senior at Claremont, was bound to be nominated for homecoming court. Arzate loves to aid her community whenevershe can. When reflecting on why she wanted to run for homecoming court, she stated she was not only doing this for her current self, but her younger self and her sister. She says that it all started when she first watched the movie Princess Protection Program.
“They were getting crowned homecoming queen,” Arzate said. “I just always thought they looked so beautiful, and I always thought that would be so cool.” Afterwards, she always envisioned herself running, but now her outlook on it is different. Her sister was also filled with the same idea, but never ran for homecoming court, fueling Arzate’s desire to run even more.

“I feel like I’m kind of doing this for both of us,” Arzate said.
Arzate’s sister was a big supporter, along with her mother. Seeing family as one of the most valuable things in her life, it meant the world to Arzate to gain their support. When asked about her plans for her senior year, she stated that she was excited to fill up her “senior memory box.” From freshman to junior year, Arzate regretted not making many proper memories, so this year, she is determined to change that.
With this, her advice to freshmen would be to try and be involved in everything.

“It was important to me to try and do all the things that I wanted to do so that I wouldn’t be left wondering what would happen if I didn’t,” Arzate said.
Arzate’s advice is to do anything and everything that interests you. From her own experience, she believes that as long as she does what interests her, she won’t be left with the awful “what ifs?”?
Her ideas on running are also down to Earth. Arzate hoped to run for homecoming court for the experience. She also hopes to achieve or at least try to achieve everything she wants in her senior year at Claremont.

From hanging out with friends to working at Trader Joe’s, Arzate holds a positive outlook on this year and onwards. With her plans to become a pilot, she is already researching different flight schools and ways to get her pilot license. Arzate would love to shout out her sister and mother, the two people who not only supported her when she decided to run for homecoming court and through life itself. She also has strong faith and would like to thank God for everything he has done for her.
