Nestor Gonzales is a senior at East Los Angeles Renaissance Academy, one of the high schools that are on the Torres campus.
Gonzales isn’t really much known for anything, his life was simple: just a normal high school student who loves music, soccer and spending time with family. Music has always been in his life, one genre that he’s been listening to since he was a kid is Metal. He says that if it wasn’t for that type of music, his personality wouldn’t be what it is now.
He’s a huge soccer fanatic too; he sees it every day and plays it with family and friends. His father is behind his passion for music and soccer, and has been a fan for the Spanish team Real Madrid. The players had shown him that no matter how behind you are, never give up on what you really want; and it’s an inspiration that Gonzales will be holding on to for the rest of his life.
One accomplish he’s really proud of is being in Torres’ soccer team since freshman year; not because he’s on the team but it makes him a scholar athlete.
Not having much growing up is what made him who he is today: very shy and antisocial he may say; but he always preferred working alone.
Gonzales is currently working with Public Matters, an organization that wants to bring change in the community in a positive way; he believes Los Angeles can become a much better place than it is now.
In the future, Gonzales plans on studying medicine and becoming a pediatrician. It’s a dream career he has been dreaming about since he was a little kid. He hopes of fulfilling his dream in becoming a doctor.
He wants to attend the most prestigious universities, and has sights on one university since he was a little boy: the University of Southern California. USC has always been his dream school. He also plans on going to Keck School of Medicine, which is the university’s medical school.
He has always wanted a career in which he can help out others and save lives has always loved helping others out. He wants to be someone they can look up to.
