RCASoCal Scholarship Recipient AmberAmber Garcia
Bachelor’s in Science / Bachelor’s in Nursing
Daughter of Tommy Garcia, SRS Distribution / JB Wholesale

"What really drew me close to the idea of becoming a nurse was my aunt. My aunt’s sister passed away on August 12, 2002. This was the exact day and year I was born, with her passing away early morning around the same time I was born. My aunt’s sister was a registered nurse. She had just finished her 12 hour shift and was on her way home when she fell asleep behind the wheel, which resulted in a tragic car accident. My aunt told me once I was old enough to understand that she believes her sister left this world so that I could enter it. I feel a strong connection to honor both my aunt and her sister by following in her footsteps of becoming a nurse."

"Marketing is a highly competitive and rewarding field. I have always been a creative problem solver and feel that I can utilize this skillset in the ever-challenging and exciting world or marketing, especially digital marketing. I first became interested in pursuing a marketing degree during my high school psychology class. I found the study of human behavior regarding choices of products and brands to be fascinating."

"One of the main reasons I am interested in pursuing business in college is the people I admire the most have a Business degree or background. These mentors of mine have shown me the value of a strong work ethic and the importance of building strong work relationships. I also like the flexibility that a degree in Business offers. It is broad enough to help prepare me for a wide range of career opportunities across many different industries."
