The Downey Legend

Sabrina Picou
When Sabrina Picou joined newspaper she was quiet, nervous and knew only one person. She did not know how to format and structure a story and self-taught herself how to write a story. Now she is one of two editors-in-chief for the Downey Legend.


“I wanted the untold stories to be told,” Picou said. “That was my goal for Newspaper.”


People in and out of Newspaper have recognized Picou’s passion.


“In my opinion, Sabrina is a responsible student and has a big future in writing ahead of her,” Jarred Aldaco said, 12.


Since joining Newspaper doors have opened for Picou, which allows her to express herself through her writing for a bigger audience. After writing an article on an exhibit at the Stay Gallery titled This Normal Life, Sabrina was offered an internship at the gallery. She now writes a blog for the Stay Gallery.


“My advice would be that life is always about risk,” Picou said.“If you never leap you’ll never know how far you’ll go.”


With the support of her friends and fellow students Picou hopes to inspire with her stories and tell the untold stories.
