Natalia Ramirez has a passion for music and knows how to keep a positive attitude, even when faced with life’s challenges. We’re already starting to recruit her to be a deputy district attorney!

The daughter of immigrants from Mexico, Natalia Ramirez, is a 16-year-old student attending Summit High School in Fontana. When you spend five minutes with her, you immediately know you’re in the company of a future leader.

Her Favorite Class- Forensics

We first became aware of Natalia when we visited Summit High School’s Forensic Science Class, taught by Ms. Anoopa Advani. The class introduces students to a whole different type of science class; the crime scene. Natalia’s favorite skill she has discovered in herself is crime scene photography.

Music Is A Passion

Natalia wrote a song titled “Shine” to give inspiration and help people maintain their confidence when feeling down. She wrote it from her own experience of when she immediately took action to step away from a dark time in her life.

In August, her family traveled to Santa Barbara for Natalia to try out for American Idol. When she didn’t make the cut, she went through a tough time. However, she picked herself back up and came back stronger.

The title of her song came from being inspired by the beauty of the stars she saw shining in the sky at night, as she looked out her window one night, trying to get through her sadness.

Staying Positive
“I know failures can be very disappointing and can have a huge impact on the way you see life, the way you see yourself. But you have to know that failure doesn’t last, and neither does sadness. And the only way that you can reach the person you want to be, and it’s very important to be the best version of yourself, but the only way you can do that is if you work for it.”Natalia Ramirez

An Ambassador For San Bernardino County

Natalia loves the city of Fontana and San Bernardino County. She strives hard to be the best student possible and spends her free time helping her family, friends, or perfecting, who she is as a person.

Her positive attitude and involvement in extra-curricular activities is an example of the great students being raised in the county.

A Future Deputy District Attorney

We asked Natalia if she would like to possibly shadow a deputy district attorney to explore a possible future in the law field, we got an emphatic, “yes.”

Maybe Natalia Ramirez will be serving the people of San Bernardino County someday here at the district attorney’s office.
