    New Vibe intern Evan Cepeda explores wide-ranging interests | Lifestyle

    Evan Cepeda, a 16-year-old junior at Father Dueñas Memorial School and a new member of Vibe, spent the summer working professionally on one of his favorite hobbies: video production.

    “I worked this summer at PBS as the main editor. I helped edit and produce a documentary about the summer interns and their experiences at PBS,” Cepeda said.

    “I edited the documentary by using footage of intern interviews, cutting and organizing them, and added some titles and music to the final product.

    “I learned things I never thought I’d learn. It made me appreciate the editors and their ability to take what they’re given and create something interesting and amazing.”

    The Chalan Pago resident’s other hobbies include making music — he’s played piano for the last seven years — and traveling.

    He said he has been to Japan, Singapore, the Philippines, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Seattle, Portland and Honolulu.

    “We’ve tried the Dole pineapple ice cream in Hawaii, which was a sour yet sweet experience, gracing my taste buds with its smooth texture in every bite,” he said.

    With the hope of becoming more active in his school community, Cepeda applied and was selected for the National Honor Society.

    “It was an honor to be selected for the NHS. It will give me an opportunity to be more active in school, be a leader and make a contribution to my community,” he said.

    “I also recently joined the FD 180-4H club, which teaches teens hands-on projects in areas like health, science, agriculture and civic engagement in a positive environment.”

    Applying to join Vibe was Cepeda’s attempt at trying out reporting to see if this is his calling in life since his mother, Theresa Merto Cepeda, is a former PDN reporter.

    “I was always interested in her job at PDN and she encouraged me to try out for the Vibe program. From this program, I hope that it will help me become a better writer, a more confident speaker, have better people skills and become more confident in myself.

    “Stories that I’m interested in covering are social justice issues, controversial issues with vast amounts of people on every side, concerts, gaming tourneys, food-related topics like restaurant openings and food reviews, and maybe even some school sports events,” he added.
