IMG_20150614_195527-1I am 18 years old and the oldest brother out of three kids. The two younger sisters I have are sort of hell raisers, but I love them very much and there names are Nicole and Natalie. I went to Downey High School and played wide receiver for the football team for 3 years. Two reasons I joined the football team is because I didn’t have to go to P.E. classes and because I love the sport. Currently I have a part-time job with YouTube, making money for making videos. Currently I don’t have a major, but I’m looking for one. Lastly, what I want to be when I grow up is probably a Police Officer.


Kyle Shramek


My name is Kyle Shramek, I’m a polisci major in my 3rd semester at Cerritos College. I’ve always been interested in history and foreign affairs, and then politics closer to the present day. Blurting out my opinions about things I’m passionate about is instinctual, so whether it be by radio, print or tv, I know journalism is something I’ll need. In my free time I’m at the skate park with my friends, driving around looking for things to take pictures of, or at the beach.

IMG_2545I am currently a college freshman taking courses to eventually transfer to a four-year university. My main goal is to become involved in professional sports and their public relations. Apart from my studies, I spend a lot of time with my family and at work. I have three brothers and one sister. My mom is a big part of what keeps me going to be the best version of myself. I was a section editor for my high school news paper and hope to have time in the near future to become a member of the Talon Marks staff.

WIN_20160227_15_12_03_Pro I am a student currently attending Cerritos College and will soon be transferring to Cal State Long Beach. I’ll be transferring as a Journalism major and hope to build a career off of this major. I am a huge fan of sports, specifically soccer and basketball. My favorite teams are Manchester United in soccer and the Lakers in basketball. My love for sports is also a big reason for wanting to become a journalist. I also like writing very much, so I feel like by combining my two favorite things, I’ll be able to find myself in a career that I truly love. I’m a very capable and hard-working person, I work at Staples while also being a full-time student.
