Luciana Vega is the sixteenth Girl of the Year released by American Girl. She was released in 2018.
Luciana (nicknamed Luci) is of Chilean descent. She aspires to be the first person to explore Mars.
She is very confident in herself and can be impulsive in a lot of her decisions, such as adding a purple streak in her hair to match her best friend Raelyn's and leading the Red Rovers to break the rules in an attempt to find their missing motor module. However, she can sometimes doubt herself due to her plans failing, and often worries about being a good leader and a good older sister.
Luci is incredibly creative, sometimes considering herself to be too creative. She loves sketching her ideas. She is also incredibly determined and quite smart, as seen in her taking part in the essay contest to get into Space Camp for several years before finally winning with a paper on space rocks, which she has an interest in. She is shown to never give up until she completes her goal.
One of Luciana's prized possessions is her star necklace, which was given to her on her first birthday. She only wears it for special occasions. At the end of Space Camp, she bought a similar necklace--a moon-shaped one instead of a star-shaped--to give as a gift to her adopted sister, Isadora. Even before Isadora was adopted, Luci became very attached to her, often worrying about being an older sister and fantasizing about spending time with her. In her head, she calls her hermanita and has nicknamed her "Izzy."
