The Downey Legend

Jazmyn Contreras
Having a heartfelt interest in drawing, Jazmyn Contreras, 10, started her passion at a young age by drawing on walls. “The pros [of drawing] are that I get to create new things and appreciate the skill and time put in to it,” Contreras said. “The cons [of drawing] would be the struggle of art blocks and distractions.”   


I never knew her before, but it was inevitable. Entering newspaper together, yet separately, Jazmyn’s bonds and characteristics in the Legend stuck out. Both being shy at first, we met through an acquaintance, and the friendship has begin to grow ever since. As an illustrator, Contreras’ job consists of making relevant and funny comics, and detailing the most important visuals in stories. She intends to stay on for the 2019-20’ year for The Downey Legend
