I believe mentoring youths to increase beyond their circumstances is exactly what puts the most significant smile on my face.”

Not long after Montes and Garcia fulfilled, Montes invited his brand-new benefactor and mentor to an event at his moms and dads’ house– total with mariachis, all his local relatives, as well as his grandma who can be found in from Guadalajara.

“It was very moving,” Garcia states. “When Arturo’s mother hugged me, I practically wept. She would not let go. She was so pleased that Arturo was going to medical school.”
