Niomy Gomez, Photographer

Junior, Niomy Gomez’s love for taking pictures drove her to join The Downey Legend newspaper staff. With the help of her friend, she was soon admitted on staff as a photographer. “That’s what I do best!” Niomy Gomez stated. “I am always ready to take pictures; it’s a hobby.” As for what she hopes to accomplish in newspaper, she wishes to motivate herself to always get the perfect picture.

Photography is only one of Gomez’s many interests; she also enjoys playing volleyball, reading, learning how to play the piano, and watching movies with her sister. Gomez’s sister is her biggest inspiration. “She’s so intelligent,” Gomez stated. “She loves to learn new things all the time and is a very free spirit. I love it!” As the youngest of three siblings, she wants to be the first in her family to graduate from a university. La Sierra University is where she wishes to attend to become an Ultrasound Technician.
