East Los Angeles Renaissance Academy

Big dream small girl for this future navy enlistee and doctor

Maya Berlynn Torres is a 17-year-old senior attending East Los Angeles Renaissance Academy.

After graduation, she is expecting to enlist in the U.S. Navy. She wants to be a doctor in the navy and college after completing her service to become a doctor.

Berlynn is choosing to serve in the navy because protecting the citizens of the U.S. is a privilege and not everyone can do it. She became interested in joining the navy at the age of 15; the fact of helping people who are wounded and saving their lives is something she always wanted to do.

She first wanted to be a doctor at the age of 10 because she always been into the medical field.

East L.A. has always been a place where she wanted to get out of and knows she could have always been able to with college, but the navy gives her a chance to do schooling and work at the same time.

She’ll be getting out of East L.A. knowing she’ll be doing something better for herself.

    If Ms. Torres hasn’t already, she should consider asking a California Congressperson or Senator for a nomination for the Naval Academy. See https://www.usna.edu/Admissions/Steps-for-Admission/Nomination-Sources/US-Senators-Representatives-and-Delegates.php
