Born in Malibu, California, Christopher Alvarez and his family moved to Durango, Mexico at a young age to reside closer to relatives. They then decided to return to the United States when he was in fourth grade for a better education as well as employment opportunities for his mother. Alvarez grew up playing basketball and soccer with friends on a daily basis. He also enjoys playing video games, which started at a young age on a Playstation 2. He now plays on an Xbox 360, with games such as “Halo”, “Destiny 2” and “Call of Duty”. He joined UPA in seventh grade and is now a sophomore. Alvarez also loves the outdoors and staying active. His passion for running created his aspiration to join the cross country team when school returns. Over time, he developed an interest for political science and philosophy from reading articles during the 2016 election season, somewhere he hopes to take his career and a main reason why he took journalism. In his first year, Alvarez wants to pursue his interests while making sure that people are informed and are being given the truth. In the future, he hopes to attend UC Berkeley with a major in philosophy or political science. In addition to his future goals, family remains priority in his life. He believes that possessions are temporary and are not as important as the relationships built with the people closest in his life.
