Meet Olivia Bohanec, Princess of Rose Court – Orange County Register

When Olivia Bohanec heard her number called and discovered she had been to the coveted Royal Court Rose Parade, she was struck with disbelief.

“My mind went completely blank thinking that they must have read the wrong number, that they must have read the wrong thing because this couldn’t be real,” she said in October, after the announcement at the Tournament House.

Bohanec, a high school preparatory student at La Salle College, said her mother Angela, along with her sisters Anikka and Katrina, had tried out to become Rose Queen in previous years, but she was the first to be crowned Rose Princess.
