Garcia says, “I think I was chosen for this just because I am very passionate about what I do. So, the clubs that I am involved in at school are what I truly enjoy. I make sure to stay on top of my academics, so I have a good GPA and all of that.”

Garcia says she wants to study pre-med and the scholarship will definitely come in handy when it comes times to pay.
