As a career journalist and EJ advocate, I see community-based media like the Alhambra Source as crucial to democracy and equality.

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Alhambra Source Salutes the AUSD Graduating Seniors of 2020: Today, Century and Independence

Location

Alhambra , CA

The Alhambra Source is proud to congratulate the graduating seniors from all five AUSD high schools. You are certainly taking a brave step into the new normal and we applaud your courage, determination and strength in weathering the last two months of a school experience far different than anyone could have anticipated.

Over the last few days we have been highlighting a graduating senior from the high schools with a self-recorded video talking about their school and accomplishments.

Alfredo Esquivel has been chosen to represent both Century and Independence high schools. Those high schools virtual graduation ceremonies, which will be streamed on YouTube, are scheduled for Friday, June 12th at 6 p.m.

Some facts about Alfredo:

Age: 18

Residence: Rosemead

College Choice: Pasadena City College

Career goal: “I really want to become an actor doing  plays, movies and TV shows. I have a passion for creating things so I also want to write and direct.”

Favorite subjects in high school: “I was really into science, English and art. I love learning about the world around and learning how everything works and I feel like science just had everything I was looking for. I also loved English for writing and the books we read, and just being able to write freely on  what we believe in was just so nice. I  also loved art but overall what I enjoyed the most over my years in high school was theatre/plays.”

What will you miss most about your high school experience?: “What I’ll miss most are all  the friends and connections that I had and (before the shutdown) being able to talk to people and just have conversations face to face.”

What personal achievement in high school are you most proud of?: “Honestly, just getting this far, even with all the things people say about me not  being able to graduate or make it in life. I’m happy with the person who’s coming out of this part of his life and the person I became.”
