A young woman from Hamilton City who won the Miss California Heartshine Queen title is now hoping to compete in the Miss Heartshine USA pageant.
Zaida Hernandez graduated from Hamilton City High School and works in a number of fields, including Photography. She is very active in the Heartshine program, which is all about "positive pagaentry" with a big focus on community service. It was developed as a senior project by a Paradise High School student several years ago. Heartshine's web site says its goal is to build confidence and Sisterhood, while celebrating" character, leadership and community."
Hernandez is friendly and love serving as a mentor to younger girls involved in Heartshine. She's got a fundraiser taking place at Cal Skate in Chico on Saturday, November 14th, from 6:30 - 9:00 p.m. A portion of the $7.25 admission price will be donated, if you mention Zaida's name. There is an additional charge for skate rentals.
Cal Skate Funland is located at 2465 Carmichael Drive, in Chico.
