Scholar Spotlight

Estrella Garcia 

The first in my family to graduate with my B.A. 

I love going to Dodger games. I have two jerseys signed by Adrian Gonzalez. 

Favorite place to travel is Seattle. I travel there twice a year. 

Going to the movie theaters is how I practice self-care. 

I bought my dream car at 20 years old. I love to maintain it & keep it nice and clean.
