The Downey Legend

Eliza Vargas

Eliza Vargas, Photographer

Possessing a drive for knowledge, Eliza Vargas, 10, joins the Downey Legend as a photographer who wants to break out of her shell and express her creativity. “I just love seeing photography in my own special way,” Vargas said. “...and the proud, unexplainable feeling I get when I can actually capture the photo just how I imagined is amazing.” 


Eliza Vargas is that one quiet shy girl in the back of the room working on her drafts and editing her photos. She is the type of girl you can count on with any assignment. The type of girl to make you laugh and smile.


Her positivity spreads throughout the classroom and on the field when playing lacrosse. Her teammates can rely on her to score and make a goal. She is strong and unstoppable on the field.

I have gotten the pleasure  to know her throughout this past year and it has been a pleasure working with her and to see her photography skills grow. I know she is going to do great things in the future whether it be with lacrosse, photography or her desire to study criminology. One thing I know for sure is that she is one of the kindest, warm-hearted human beings I have ever met.
