99th Festival Queen

Liz Troia

My family has a deep history with the festival and I have been coming to the festival my entire life. I love this festival more than anything and this community that has been brought to me. I got invested in this when my sister, Gina Troia, ran in 2018 and became the Queen of Santa Lucia. I wanted to follow in her stead and have my own experience with this festival like she did. I work hard for everything that I do and love all kinds of art. I enjoy volunteering and learning about all of the different cultures and traditions that people have. I go to Mercy High School and am currently in my junior year. I wanted to find a way to be able to reach St. Lucy the way that she did when I first learned about her.
