Joshua Fajardo

CAMS Student / Incoming UCLA Student
Joshua Fajardo is a senior student who feels quite ready to graduate. He loves meeting new people and learning their stories (or helping them make new ones). The possibility of making a positive difference in the life of another is what motivates him to do much of what I do. When he has free time, he can probably be found breakdancing in his garage, going out to see swans, or distracting himself with cooking videos on Facebook (you might also find him doing this last activity in my not-so-free time).

Luis Hidalgo

CAMS Student (Graduating)
Hidalgo is a thinker. Intrigued by the minds of the great physicists and philosophers, his mind has been continuously maturing to expound an epiphany. His pastimes include synthesizing theories and analyzing those of the past. His ambition is to outmatch the caliber of the minds that came before him. Join him in his perplexing network of thought, evaluating humanity and existence all at once.

Sean Yamaguchi

CAMS Student
Sean is a 15-year old student from CAMS. Unlike many high school students, he is still uncertain of what path he will take in the future. He just hopes that in whatever he does in the future, will make him happy. On a different note, he truly and deeply cares about those around him, even if they don’t care for him. Sean wants to be able to transcend the meaning of kindness, goodness, and love to those around him so that he may one day wake up in a world without aggression and hate.

Shua Cho

She is currently part of a Girls Build LA team that received $1000 from the LA Promise Fund to use to help homeless women lacking feminine hygiene products. Shua enjoys reading, competing in Science Olympiad, building robots in FRC, and visiting National Parks.
