Juan Munguia , Photographer

Juan Munguia, a 17-year-old social butterfly, is one of the new photographers to join The Downey Legend. Munguia took this opportunity to improve his skills as a photographer and is striving to show people things they have never seen before. He aims to start shooting some behind the scenes material this year. Although he describes photography as a “cool little hobby,” he has made it his personal mission to make sure every photo he takes is close to perfect.


Not only is Munguia a photographer, he is a food fanatic and a dog lover. When he isn’t snapping pictures of his husky, Mishka, or chowing down on pastrami fries from The Hat, he is spending quality time with friends or playing basketball. Munguia’s friends would describe him as an outgoing guy who would do anything for others. He isn’t afraid of making new friends and stepping outside of his comfort zone. He plans on spending two years at Cerritos College and then hopes to join the fire academy. “Being able to help someone is amazing,” Munguia said “but being able to save their life is even better.” He hopes to accomplish his lifelong goal of becoming a firefighter in the next 10 years.
