Samara Fiesta Queen a Hometown Girl

By Arianna McKinney

Samara is Jimena Hernández Arguedas’ town. The 2010-2011 queen of the Samara Fiesta says she knows a lot of people here and doesn’t want to live anywhere else.

After more than a week of practices with three styles of dress (swimsuit, cowgirl and evening dress), came the night of the coronation. Jimena had been diligent in selling entrance tickets for the dance that marked the opening of Samara’s Fiesta, which ran December 29-January 2, selling a total of 51 tickets. When it came time to name the queen, though, there was a tie. The two potential queens had to draw to see who would be crowned, and Jimena won the draw. 

Jimena’s family moved to Samara when she was just a baby. She currently lives in Cantarana of Samara. Her mother is Kelly Arguedas, her father is Alfonso Hernández, and she has an older sister, Andrea.  

The new queen said that during the fiesta many people wanted to meet and congratulate her and get to know the queen.  

 


Jimena takes her responsibilities as queen seriously, trying not to be a bad example to others, attending every day of the fiesta and inviting others to participate as well, especially since this event raised money for the school and she encourages everyone to continue collaborating in the fiesta next year.

Jimena said her favorite part of the fiesta was seeing the famous bull El Chirriche, who managed to quickly dump its rider on January 1st.
 
When people ask her if she’d like to live somewhere else, Jimena tells them no. She likes living in Samara because of the beach and the tranquil environment, and because she has a lot of friends here. She enjoys beach sports like swimming and walking on the beach.    

The queen is 13 years old and will be starting 8th grade at Liceo de Nicoya. Jimena, who currently has braces, wants to be a dentist specializing in orthodontics since she thinks that what people often see first is someone’s teeth, therefore, she wishes to fix others’ teeth.
