Roberto Huerta Talks Guitar and Sports

Tell our readers a little bit about yourself. My name is Roberto Huerta; I am 13 years old turning 14 on the 28th of March. I attend St. John Vianney Catholic School. This is my first year at St. John Vianney and I love it here.  I have two younger brothers, Leo and Lucciano. How long have you been playing the guitar? I have been playing the guitar for four years; I started playing the guitar at my old school when I joined a guitar club. I owe my passion to my music teacher; Mrs. Williams who taught me the basics of guitar. What is your favorite song to sing? My favorite song to play is How He Loves Us by the David Crowder Band. I was taught by Basilio Salinas from the 3More Band; they are our Church’s music band. Tell us about your after school involvement with sports and activities? What sports do you play? Which are your favorites? I have joined a few clubs and sports at my school. In the beginning of the school year I joined flag football. Football is my favorite sport. The next sport I joined was basketball; I like to interact with my teammates. I am also the Captain of our schools’ Robotics Club. Our robot was in different competitions and on our last competition we finished 14th place out of 44 schools participating; Middle and High School.  I am also part of the Math club and I am a member of NJHS – National Juniors Honors Society. What is your favorite part of your Church’s youth/ teen club? What is the club about? What types of things do you do in the community? Teen Club at St. John Vianney is a place to hang out and have fun, and at the same time grow in our faith. It’s a group of teens, getting together to help each other, in any way. I also help out with the Youth Ministry, which is part of Teen Club. My favorite part of Teen Club is when the 3 More Band performs; we praise and worship together. I help out my community and school by helping with Bake Sales during Sunday’s Mass. I also Altar serve at least 2 times a month. When I am given the opportunity I also like to play my guitar during mass. What do love best about attending St. John Vianney? Tell us about one your favorite teacher(s). My favorite part of school is my first period class; Religion. Fr. Paul Ibarra who is a Priest for St John Vianney Church is the Teacher for Religion class. He is one of the coolest teachers I have ever had. He is wise, humble, hilarious, smart, and a true man of God. He is my favorite Teacher. Where do you think you are going to High School? What do you wish to excel in in high school? I still don’t know which high school I will be attending, I am hoping I am able to attend St. Mary’s HS because it is a catholic high school and it will continue my journey into my faith. I would like to study Engineering and Music. What do you think you will be when you grow up? When I grow up I would like to be an Engineer or a musician. I’m not sure what kind of engineer yet. A lot of people suggest I should be a Priest because I would be a great priest but I am not sure about that yet. When you are not in school, what do you like to do? When I am not in school I like to ride my bike to my friend’s house, then we go to Dust Devil Park; and we like to work out, this park has exercise equipments which I have not seen at other park before. If you had any super power, what would it be? What good things would you do with said super power? My favorite super hero is Obi –Wan Kenobi a Jedi from Star Wars. I would love to be able to use the force like him. With that power I could sense evil around my surroundings. I could use it to influence people to love each other, and I could use it to speak to those who are lost in the faith. I am a Star-Wars nerd – ‘May the Force be with you’
