I Want to Be a Lawyer and Work in a Building Downtown

Maricela Hipolito

I’m a junior at the Downtown Magnets High School. I’m taking English this summer, I wish I didn’t have to, but I failed the class. I missed a lot of classes and now I’m paying for it.

I could go to a school closer to home in East L.A., but my school is really good. My sister came to this school first and she got me in. I want to make her proud. I want to be a lawyer. Ever since I started coming to school downtown, I realized I want to work at one of these buildings. They look so nice.
