It’s not often you meet people that are very humble, hardworking, and kind. However, Victor is most definitely all three! He is a 16-year-old sophomore here at Agua Fria and is brand new to the journalism class with the starting position as a news reporter. 

Victor has social anxiety and is usually a pretty reserved person and is used to being quiet and in the corner.  He joined journalism because he has an open mind and wants to break out of his comfort zone to meet new people. 

Victor says he’s a “calm kind-hearted teen,” adding, “I will try when it benefits others. I will try my hardest to make someone happy even if they don’t want or need my help”. 

Victor is a man of many interests. Some things he has picked up are sketching still life images in his journal during his free time or skateboarding around his neighborhood whenever he has the time. 

He is also a fan of football and one of his favorite teams are the Cardinals. Although he does those activities, he loves gaming most of all. On his Xbox, some of his favorite games that he plays in order to pass the time are Rainbow Siege and Warzone. 

Outside of skating and gaming, he loves to watch movies as well. He can watch anything but he loves to watch documentaries mainly about music artists and their life stories. 

Some of his favorite films of all time include The Nightmare Before Christmas, Everybody’s Everything, and especially Pulp Fiction. He loves this movie because it “opened my mind to the real world and all its problems.” 

Some of the most significant moments in Victor’s life include him going to the hospital for taking a serious fall on his head in his childhood and he even saved one of his cousins from choking. Other moments that are significant to him are vacations to Mexico where he loves seeing his culture and hearing new stories from his family. 

In regards to the future, Victor has some ideas and he’s very dedicated to making sure he’ll be set and be able to help his parents out later on. 

He said he wants to go somewhere small for college but he hasn’t decided where yet. Some careers he’s considering in his lineup are architecture, dentistry and business. 

With his laid back vibes and admirable personality, Victor has a bright future ahead of him. If you need a friend to help you at your lowest point, he’ll certainly be there!
