The Downey Legend

Oscar Flores

Oscar Flores, Copy Editor

Passionate and outgoing, upcoming journalist Oscar Flores, 12, will follow where the story goes and have his friends and family to guide him. “My friends and family helped me get to where I am today and where I’m going to go,” Flores stated. “The impact I want to make on the world with my writing is what brought me to the art of journalism.” 


Throughout our lives, we meet people who leave a lasting impact. They arrive at an unexpected time, but it is always when you are in need of their wisdom.


Oscar Flores is one of the kindest and most talented individuals that I have ever met. His ability to lace emotion and sincerity within every single one of his articles never fails to amaze me. Oscar is not afraid to take risks, in both his writing pieces and in real life. He faces all the obstacles thrown his way with perseverance and a positive outlook, qualities that are rare to find within many people.


I feel very grateful to have a person like Oscar in my life. Having him as a best friend is one of the greatest things to happen to me. Oscar has helped me through many difficult trials in my senior year and I can’t thank him enough for it.
