Diego Martinez, Editor in Chief

Former Copy Editor, Diego Martinez, 12, has been on The Downey Legend staff for the past 2 years and is going into his first as Co-Editor in Chief. Outside of the classroom Martinez enjoys listening to various music genres, learning and composing on his guitar, and writing on the side. Although undecided of his college major, Martinez aims to continue to express his creative side by one day recording his own music and living off his art in music and writing. 

As someone who loves to showcase his thoughts through creative expression, Martinez believes that we can use our own struggles to create art. “I think the thought process that I like to keep is that life is uncertain to the point where we lose trust in ourselves and begin to doubt the ability to slay our own dragons,” Martinez stated. “It took me more than just a small while to realize that we can always smile at our own shadow, our own subconscious traits that shackle us, and write down every small aspect that forms our very soul - and make art with it.”
