The Downey Legend

Maya Mercado-Garcia
Junior dancer Maya Mercado-Garcia enters The Downey Legend with hopes to sharpen her photography skills and expose an often dormant side of Downey. The Youth For Change founder was spurred onto this path by an encouraging advisor and plans to grow and evolve with her work.  


“I hope to grow…” Garcia said. “I always admired newspaper and how much hard work went into documenting school events. I want to sharpen my skills and continue Newspaper’s high standard.”
