S2E11: "I Like To Make Negative Energy Into Power"

For this episode of We Are EG, I talked with Tuvshin Zuunbayan, an Elk Grove Sophomore whose love for wrestling has already carried him to tournaments around the world to places such as Mongolia and Japan. Tuvshin and I sat down to talk about his experiences growing up in a wrestling family, learning to pave his own path, and joining the EGHS Wrestling Team this year for the first time. Throughout our conversation I learned a lot about the physical and mental demands of the sport, as well as how Tuvshin has learned to channel his emotions into competition.

S2E6: "Everything Is On You"

Adolfo is an incredibly artistic junior at Elk Grove High School. His artistic talents began through graffiti; actually getting in trouble freshman year for tagging at his prior school. Through self-discovery and strengthening his faith, he has found that his artistic talents are better to be used towards good, even creating a mural with other students at his church. Through the art program at EGHS, he has learned more about realistic drawing. Now his interests have expanded to music through the high school guitar classes. Adolfo discusses how music has become a bigger passion, and how he has expanded his music repertoire to also learning to play the piano. In his future, he wants to incorporate music with art to feed his need to explore his creative thoughts.
