Lenina Garcia My name is Lenina Garcia. I was born in Honduras but I was raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. I currently attend school at Delgado studying Information Technology and work full time at a department store. For me, education has always been something important even though my parents don’t think the same. While I was growing up, they weren’t concerned with me attending college or finishing high school. When I turn eighteen, I had to move out of their house. That gave me the freedom to return to school. My goal in life is to obtain a master’s degree. Also, another one of my future goals is to be able to help young people go to college and help them understand the importance of having an education. Nominated to participate in the Aspen Forum for Community Solutions.
