Nico Lopez joins Islander as new intern


 icolas Lopez has joined the staff of The Islander News as a summer intern,
Lopez is a Chilean-American citizen whose father is from Chile and mother is from California.
He will start his senior years at LaSalle next month and has lived on Key Biscayne for 4 years, at two separate points in his life.
Lopez moved to Key Biscayne from Chile in 2007 and went through 5th grade at the Key Biscayne K-8 Center. The following year, he moved back to Chile and stayed until the 8th grade, after which the family moved back to Key Biscayne in 2011, when he started as a freshman at LaSalle.
“While I have only lived on Key Biscayne for a few years, I have very fond memories of the island,” said Lopez. “As a child I would come with my family to spend my vacations here. My parents bought an old Mackle House on Enid Drive in 1998, and every year we would come and spend time enjoying the beach, the Village Green and all the amenities that the island had to offer, and which I continue to enjoy to this day.”
Lopez’s hobbies include playing and listening to music, swimming, writing, spending time with friends and family, and, above all, being curious to learn about everything the world has to offer.
“After all, the world is essentially the ultimate playground of knowledge and opportunity, and quite possibly the most fascinating place we’ll ever be in our lives,” said Lopez. “I thank Nancye Ray and all the staff here at The Islander News for their warm welcome, and am happy and glad to be part of the team here at the newspaper.”
