Ruiz remembers the first time she saw the members of The Downey Legend come into her class and talk about joining; Ruiz just knew she had to try it out. “Fundraising and keeping the environment friendly and fun is a goal I want to achieve this year.” Ruiz stated.

Senior Ruiz has many goals; one goal is to graduate from high school with good grades, as well as being able to enjoy newspaper at the same time. Other than watching Netflix Ruiz loves to play soccer with her team outside of DHS. Coming to the end of her school day, Ruiz likes to relax at home either baking or listening to; Drake, Sam Smith and Inene Alko. Once Ruiz is out of high school, she plans to go to a university with the goal of transferring to USC. At USC she is going to study in becoming a teacher or accountant. As Ruiz grows older, her plan is to move into a hipster town to live her life; letting all her hard work and dedication pay off.
