Matthew Echavez, Reporter

Matthew Echavez is a 19-year-old student majoring in the field of journalism. He has lived in Fresno all his life but has visited numerous countries like Japan and Russia. Journalism was not always his first career choice. For the longest time, Matthew juggled with various interests and beliefs. His lack of direction led nowhere concerning a solid idea of what he wanted to do as a career. From history to video games and sports, he developed all sorts of fads and enjoyments, but not truly anything he could see himself make a career in.

It would slowly begin to change when he started involving himself in amateur writing. Matthew’s interest in expressing himself better and talking about topics that came to mind allowed him to realize his enjoyment of writing. He took an interest in researching and attempting to convey stories. Though relatively short, this stint nurtured a small audience that encouraged him to continue forward with his self-expression.

Further interest in writing would mature with Matthew’s interests in hard conversations, politics, and social commentary. He wanted to be the one to ask questions and do something meaningful to him. Despite some initial reservations about journalism due to its implausibility as a career, he took the chance after some encouragement.

In his spare time, Matthew loves to play games with friends. He also likes to listen to all types of music, especially from abroad and plays guitar.

He hopes to experience journalism at The Rampage and learn more about the profession while growing as an individual.
