About Me

My name is Jordyn Quen. I am 15 years old and a sophomore at Fortuna Union High School. I enjoy playing sports and being involved with our community. Everyone in my family, my mom, dad, and thirteen year brother, and close family friends have been involved in sports so it has really influenced me to also be involved in them I have lived in Humboldt County my entire life. I have reffed volleyball and soccer multiple times. And even coached a volleyball and soccer team. I've played sports my whole life, starting at the age of three. But now, I only play basketball and volleyball. I've been playing basketball since I was six, and volleyball since I was 11. I am very involved in the Eel River Valley Portuguese community. I partake in a parade in Ferndale. Since I was queen this year I had to wear a crown and a large cape. Being the queen represents Queen Isabel, or Saint Elizabeth of Portugal because of her actions to help the poor. After that I then go to other cities and towns for their communities parade that represent their communities queen. My Avó and Grandpa are also very involved in this community.  They have traveled to almost all of the nine islands in the Açores. They have traveled many, many more places which aspires me to do the same.
