As Travis Padilla, 12, begins his final year at Downey High, he also ventures out into his first year in Newspaper as a writer.  Although Padilla does not see writing as a potential career option, his involvement in Newspaper comes from a connection with a previous Newspaper alumni.  In his free time, Padilla enjoys fishing, hiking, and going out with friends, so it comes as no surprise that we will see him become a ranger in one of our beautiful national parks in the next couple of years.  Padilla also mentioned he is a fan of horror movies, therefore his favorite holiday is also Halloween, so don’t be afraid to ask him for movie recommendations. Padilla says his favorite quote is simply, “You remember lesson about balance?  Lesson not just karate only.  Lesson for whole life.  Whole life have a balance.” Padilla explains that this quote is essential to his ability to have a balance between school and life not just because it’s his favorite movie.


“I want to learn how to articulate myself better by being able to better put my thoughts into words,” Padilla stated.
