Kristin Martinez said she is the sweetest person she can be.
Martinez, a Lanier High School incoming junior, said her hobbies include boxing.
She said she was thoroughly upset when boxer Manny Pacquiao lost in his most recent fight against Timothy Bradley. Martinez said she believed the fight was “fixed.”
One of her dreams is to become a freelance photographer specializing in military photography. She said her sister is a freelance photographer and has inspired her to pursue her dream.
Martinez is a vegetarian, and her favorite rapper is Mac Miller, so it is no coincidence that “Wear My Hat” is her favorite song.
Martinez’s brother plays guitar in the San Antonio-based band Wisdom of the Fallen.
She said she believes newspapers are a way to showcase the right of freedom of speech and that journalism is an expression of oneself.
Martinez is also someone who gets flustered when it comes to big groups of people.
She said she is more a “behind-the-scenes” type of person.
Martinez said she was selected to join the Urban Journalism Workshop at San Antonio College the day before the program started and has made the most out of her last-minute opportunity.
