Hi, I’m Andrea Garcia, a passionate Mexican swimmer who has dedicated her life to achieving diverse goals and objectives. In my journey as a student-athlete, I have learned the essential importance of resilience and discipline, especially in the face of challenges and failures, which I see as opportunities to grow and improve.
One of my biggest dreams is to compete in the Olympics, a driving force that has driven me since the beginning of my career. Along with this journey, my goal for college is to enter a challenging and competitive environment that will allow me to achieve new things in my athletic, academic, and social skills.
I yearn not only for my own success, but also to proudly and respectfully carry the name of my future university into the international arena. Together, as a team, we will prove that hard work and passion are the formula that will take us to unimaginable places and allow us to leave an indelible mark on this exciting journey.
