About Oliver Garcia

I am a senior in high school, and was fortunate enough to receive a scholarship to Wasatch Academy in Utah, and then moved onto Vernon Hills High School in Illinois. I grew up in a very poor area of Mexico, and am very fortunate the charity Por Los Niños took interest in me and enabled me to get such a quality education.
