The Downey Legend

Gabriela Guzman

Gabriela Guzman, Photographer

As a sophomore, photographer Gabriela Guzman wanted to become more involved in school rather than just being in drum line. It was not until a few days before the application deadline when Guzman decided to apply. “My friend Jessie convinced me to apply to Yearbook, ” Guzman said, “but I ended up making it to Newspaper.” Though she is not a part of Yearbook, Guzman is more than excited to be a part of The Downey Legend. Since she is shy, she wants to be involved in school to get out of her shell and meet new people.“ I want to be more open. Do things I have never done before and stop holding back,” Guzman stated.

When she is not busy with drum line and school, she spends time with her two older sisters or her half-brother. Sometimes, when she is alone in her room, she listens to her favorite band, My Chemical Romance, while drawing different sketches of anything she sees or imagines. When she is hungry, she always prefers pasta. “Any kind of pasta is my favorite,” Guzman said,“ I love Italian food.” Though reading is never on her top priority list, she read The Fault in our Stars this summer and fell in love with it. Because she is only a sophomore, Guzman does not yet know what she wants to do after high school, but she does know that she wants to go somewhere far. In a few years she sees herself living an independent life while chasing her dreams. All in all, she just hopes for a fun, easy year.
