The Downey Legend

Vanessa Carrillo
Looking to help the sick and elderly, Vanessa Carrillo, 11, hopes to become a CNA or RNA medic while attending CSULB (Cal State University of Long Beach). “I’ll probably be a CNA or RNA after high school,”  Carrillo said. “And then while I go to college for the major I decide to major on I’ll take care of the elderly or sick.” 


The Downey legend is proud to have Vanessa as the new incoming EIC she has worked in a very small branch of  newspaper, the business team she as well takes whichever responsibility falls on her shoulders whatever is is needed of her and more, with planning all the events for newspaper and makes sure that all the cogs of this organization are working smoothly and without a problem.

She also is not afraid of branching out her extensive talents as a writer or a photographer all ways, seamlessly transcending into other organizations such as wrestling and sometimes overwhelming herself. She still finds the time to give lunches up to go volunteer. Never wanting the spotlight because that is just who she is.
