There are some people who live to make a difference in the lives of those around them. Marissa Garcia is one of those people. Creator of the 30 on 30 Project and current Americorps Vista, Garcia constantly strives to reach perfection in herself and helps others realize their own potential. With the motto “I create my own good luck,” it’s hard to imagine anything less than someone who is extremely driven and passionate about what they do.

Born and raised in San Antonio, TX, Garcia graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio and is currently serving an Americorps Vista year of service in Seneca Falls, New York, home of the Women’s Rights Movement, where she is helping build sustainability for the United Way. For her 30th birthday, she focused on creating a sustainable solution to hunger while building community. What’s next for this amazing individual? We’ll let her tell her story…
