My life during senior year

Alia SalomonThank you so much to everyone who’s supported me on my journey so far! :) The pageant is getting closer and closer, and I’m so excited! I am still looking for some more sponsors due to traveling expenses and additional fees, but I am so blessed to have amazing people in my life to help me. :)

Things are moving really fast and I’ve been busy, not only with the pageant but also with school! I applied to 4 colleges in California, and I was accepted into Chico state already! I’m primarily waiting on Cal Poly Pomona, because they have a 4 year veterinary technologist program that would allow me to have more hands on experience working with animals than any other school! I should know which school I will be attending by this April.

I’m also excited to announce that I got my ears re-pierced!! :) I’ve had them pierced twice in the past, but the holes wouldn’t heal and I had allergic reactions. It’s been 4 years since the last time, and a few days ago I decided to try again! :) I went to Matchless Tatoo in Sebastopol and had a great experience! He used Titanium posts and so far I haven’t had any complications, so I’m hoping they will heal perfectly.

In other news, my school recently had its annual “CAPA night” where teachers and staff reenact an engineering failure, for which we will have to determine the root cause. The failure of the Columbia space shuttle reenactment was from 6pm until 10pm, and our executive summary determining how the problem could have been prevented and the cause, was due the next morning. It was a very long night with friends full of soda and phone chargers! haha

Another major endeavor going on this year is our Senior Project. At my school, in small groups we create a mock company, invent a product, and build a business around it including business plan, research and development, marketing and PR, financial plan, and production. The company my group created is working on a cool watering system for lawns. My job is marketing and PR. This is a year long project that teaches us all about running a company.

I will continue to keep you updated on my life and progress towards becoming your next Miss California Teen! Thank you for your interest and support!
