Cynthia Guerrero has joined The Downey Legend for the first time, during her senior year, as a photographer. Last year she was in Photojournalism, but this year she signed up for Newspaper. Guerrero got into Newspaper by first applying to Yearbook and then switching to The Downey Legend. Guerrero felt that Yearbook was not something she wanted to pursue, so she moved classes to gain a different experience. “Newspaper fit better on my schedule than Yearbook did,” Guerrero stated.

Guerrero states that she wants to be an Ultrasound technician or go to a four-year university to major in cosmetology. To Guerrero, college is something she does not want to spend her money on if it is something that is not worth spending. “I don’t care as long as it’s worth it,” Guerrero stated. Some of Guerrero’s hobbies are singing, listening to music, hanging with friends, shopping, and being on YouTube. In five to ten years she has big plans. “Living on my own, studying college, opening my salon for hair and eyebrows,” Guerrero works hard to accomplish her goals, she will get there with her determination.
