SBMS Teen Press team logo

Hi! My name’s Gibson. I am a seventh grader at Santa Barbara Middle School. I’m so excited to be a part of something as great as the Santa Barbara Middle School Teen Press. Why don’t I tell you a little bit about myself...

Dream Potato?
What? I, uh... I would have to go with some sort of spicy, baked potato. Cooked to perfection. It would be the best potato of the entire farm, cooked for the exact right amount of time, at the exact right temperature. I would put the best hot sauce of all time, Tabasco, on it, along with sour cream.

Favorite Movie?
The Dark Knight was a movie that really just stuck with me, and I could see it again and again. Heath ledger’s part in the film has some of the most memorable acting I’ve ever seen.

Dream Interview?
If I could interview Dave Grohl of Nirvana and Foo Fighters, that would be incredible. Also, I would really like to interview John C. Reilly.

Why do you want to be in TP?
I want to be in Teen Press because it’s really a one of a kind opportunity. Interviewing and journalism is something that I’m actually quite interested in, and I’ve never seen a program like Teen Press Before. So, this is an opportunity I felt like I really should take.


When I’m older, I would love to still be playing music. Being in a band and playing is what I would love to be doing for a living.

Movie Treat?
Bunch a Crunch. Best candy I’ve ever had in a movie theatre.

What's your dream?
My dream is for all countries to come together as one, and use each other’s strengths, to help with their weaknesses.

Music Group?
Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Green Day, or Weezer. I love the funky bass lines, and overall catchy-ness of Red Hot Chili Peppers, the explosive choruses and punk-rock of Green Day, the pure rock and talent of Foo Fighters, and the catchy melodies and awesome guitar in Weezer’s songs.

Movie Quote?
“Because he’s the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we’ll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he’s not a hero, he’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A Dark Knight.” - The Dark Knight
