The Heart of Determination Meet Daniel De La Torre
Daniel De La Torre has an ear for good music and an avid love of sports. In addition to a warm personality and a great smile, Daniel also has a dream to become a sports commentator, and each day gets a little closer to making that dream a reality.
Starting in Tierra’s College to Career program in 2017, Daniel experienced a few set-backs that resulted in having to take a break from his studies. However, Tierra did not give up on Daniel, and most importantly, Daniel didn’t give up on himself. In August of 2018, Daniel returned to Tierra and continues his studies at Los Angeles Valley College, where he is majoring in broadcasting in the Media Arts Department.
Professor Jason Beaton shares, “Daniel is one of our best students in broadcasting. He has gone through so many classes, always tries, and works incredibly hard. He had a time slot on Valley’s KVCM Monarchs radio station this past December and did an excellent job!”
With hard work, dedication, and the support of Tierra’s mentors and his family, Daniel earned a Certificate in Broadcasting in 2019. Alfonso De La Torre beams at all his son has accomplished, “I am very proud of Daniel, and his progression, as he works to find a job in sports radio. I know he can do it.”
Daniel continues to work towards his AA and plans to transfer to CSUN this Fall. Stay tuned, world! Daniel De La Torre is a name to remember.
