“I would rather have people respect me than like me.” Senior Alex Garcia is all about authenticity, creativity, and having a positive attitude. They are AHS Journalism’s editor, news anchor, podcaster, and broadcaster. They joined journalism because of the community and their love of the program. “Seeing others excel at journalism is inspiring. Working with people in the class is a lot of fun and the dynamics work together really well. Everything balances out.” Garcia said. 

Other than Journalism, Garcia is heavily involved in the band, playing both the trombone and recently picking up the trumpet. “I wanted to try something new,” Garcia said. They enjoy practicing scales, learning new things, and improving their skills. Garcia hopes in 10 years they will be continuing with this passion they have, “No matter what kind of music.” Garcia said. 

Garcia strives to make senior year their best. They’ve said, “I’ve been putting a lot more effort in already.” and “ I know I'm going to miss what I have when I leave high school.” Garcia’s love for journalism, music, and friends is what motivates them to always try to give their 100%.
