I spoke with a fellow classmate Freddy Varela on Thursday. He is a third year commuting within Long Beach and chose our school because he wanted to remain local. His major is Recreational Therapy. He mentioned that he explored a couple other majors as well, including Kinesiology. Freddy contemplated his majors based on his desire to help people and see their progress, which is something I can relate to and admire.
We then talked about sports. He played soccer and basketball in high school, both of which I am not too familiar with. Freddy mentioned that he played both recreationally in high school. He said his favorite sports team is the Lakers. We both mentioned how we want to attend our first professional sports games by the end of the year.
Overall, Freddy is a pretty nice guy. I got to know him more as well as his political views when we spoke with the artist together. He’s an intelligent individual who has a firm set of beliefs, morals, and purpose.
