Love Carnival. Antonella Ulloa remembers that she did not miss the pre-carnivals and she was also a Miracorso and that she played with her cousins ​​and friends in the street of her neighborhood. In recent years, she has changed her role and enjoys the big party from the top of a car, as a sovereign, and spreading her joy to others. She confesses that she loves it.

In 2015 she was queen of the Tinga Labuchi comparsa; in 2016, she queen of the Yacuiba Carnival; In 2017, the Vanidosos comparsa elected her sovereign of the Vallegrande Carnival; and in 2018 she repeats her story with the Agrupaciones Unidas bloc, which brings together 29 comparsas from Santa Cruz de la Sierra.

He affirms that one does not need to be rich to be queen of a troupe. “At least not in my case, because I had the help of comparseros to subsidize the expenses.”

He had such good experiences that he did not think twice when he learned the intentions of the comparseros. “The boys are making an effort to promote the essence of the Carnival of yesteryear and we will show it in our activities”, she promises.

Antonella will be crowned at the Singing to the Queen music festival, whose date and venue are yet to be defined. At the event, in addition to promoting the customs of yesteryear, the talent of the participants will be rewarded.

Agrupaciones Unidas will not jump in the corso, but will be present at the event from a pascana. During the three days of wetting, it will be installed at the corner of La Paz and Manuel Ignacio Salvatierra streets.

She is in her second year of law school at Utepsa and plans to practice her profession to help victims of violence.

“I would like, through my profession, to help fight this monster so that there are no more women victims of abuse or that crimes against them go unpunished,” concludes the model.
