Kai I. ‘22, Vistamar’s student-athletes, and Mr. Polett led a school-wide food drive to benefit @hungeractionla Donations were so generous, we broke a few containers carrying everything out and filled up an entire truck!

Vistamar's cohort of international students took their first field trip of the year. They headed to the Geffen Museum in Little Tokyo for the exhibit, Pipilotti Rist: Big Heartedness, Be My Neighbor followed by lunch at a local restaurant and a Historic Downtown LA Walking Tour organized by the Los Angeles Conservancy.
Vistamar Psychology students hosted Mee Vaj, founder of Empowered Mind Wellness in Long Beach. A Laotian immigrant, Mee sought training in hypnotherapy after a series of unfortunate events (in her case, injuries from successive auto crashes) and currently aims to "help a billion people in this lifetime" through therapeutic healing.
