Juliane - Senior Portrait Photography Session - Pensacola

What’s your name?  Do you have a nickname(s)?

“My name is Juliane Kate Alba. My friends usually call me Juju for short.”

Your favorite high school memory?

My favorite high school memory was winning senior homecoming queen at Gulf Breeze High School. The crowd was so big!! I’m a part of the Gulf Breeze Soundware Band and when they heard my name, they immediately stopped playing, screamed, and cheered so loud. It made me cry!”

What are your plans for after high school?

“I am going to University of Central Florida and I am going to major in chemistry. I hope to get my Bachelor’s degree there and soon after I hope to get into medical school.

If you could have one song play every time you entered a room, which song would you choose?

“Definitely “Crazy in Love” by Beyonce! If you ask anyone, they know I will break it down. That song is my jam!

What extracurricular activities where you involved in?

“I am a part of the Gulf Breeze Soundwave Band and I am the co-section leader of the clarinets. I am the president of the Tri-Music Honor Society and the co-president of Health Academy of Health and Medical Professions. I am a four year member of HOSA and have made it to state and placed in the top 10 finalists at nationals with my Parliamentary Procedure team. I am a member of Mu Alpha Theta, National English Honor Society, Rho-Kappa, Science National Honor Society, and the Optimist Club.

What are you most proud of accomplishing while you were in high school?

“Every year, my band has had a competition the day of homecoming. Usually there’s a small group of kids who get to attend homecoming, if they can get ready in an hour or so. For me, that’s very unlikely. So this year, as Tri-M President, I came up with BOCO (short for band homecoming). This was a weekend where all the band kids were free and there was no conflict. We were able to throw the dance in our band room, put up decorations, lights, and even some jazz music! We also had an “after-party” at a restaurant on the beach. It was a great turn out!! Everyone had an amazing time and told me how it was one of their best high school dances. I’m so glad I didn't get to miss out on my senior homecoming.”
