Hard Work Pays Off
As simple as that sounds, this is my motto. Growing up the youngest of four children and the son of immigrant parents, I understood early on in life the importance of working hard to achieve the goals you wanted to reach in life. Although my parents didn’t graduate middle school, they were able to see their American Dream become a reality through the success of their children in education. I am now a graduate of the NYU class of 2013 and believe that by focusing on educational inequity and the achievement gap, we can hear more stories like mine. Through Practice Makes Perfect’s mission and your support today, we can get one step closer to our new goal: eliminating the achievement gap in America. I am Andy Garcia and this is MY education story.
