Kevin Garcia, class of 2019 at SET High, was a very motivated student and still is a very motivated individual. Originally born and raised in Rockford, Illinois Garcia grew up and found a love for all things sports and military. Unfortunately, after some time Garcia's father had to move to Tijuana, Mexico. Obviously separated by immense distance Kevin and his mom moved to San Diego, California.
Not too long after their move, they moved once again but this time into Tijuana along with his father. Having started his education in the United States his parents wanted him to continue doing so - and come highschool he did just that.
Kevin started at SET High as a freshman and made an incredible treck every morning at 4 am across the international border, to the trolley station, to the bus station, and all the way to The School for Entrepreneurship and Technology.
Neil McCurdy, principal of SET High, wanted to highlight Garcia's amazing journey to the school every day to bring awareness to the dedication and drive he had toward his education and success.
"Basically we drove down to the San Ysidro border at like 5 one morning and followed his journey from the U.S side up with a camera. Honestly, one of my favorite projects and I feel like we really captured a lot." - Camden Weisbruch, Director.
Although the project only took up the span of one morning, the outcome of the video and the overall result was big.
