Week 13: Classmate Interview

Victor Paredes


This week I talked with Victor, a freshman film major. He started out with computer science last semester, but he said it wasn’t for him. He lives in Long Beach, and went to Lakewood High School, where he was on the swim team and played water polo. Victor enjoys hiking. His favorite place to hike is Yosemite, however he hikes most often at Vanalden. I asked him about any good nearby places and he suggested Palos Verdes Estates. He had his camera on him which was filled with many photos of his different hiking trips, including Mammoth. He showed me pictures of an old abandoned Russian tank that was all rusted out on the shore, as well as some great views from the top of the hike. I plan on trying it out tomorrow.
