Edson Garcia is Working to Bring Awareness to the Midterm Elections

Garcia says he joined Jolt because he agrees with its platform and how the organization fights and mobilizes Latino youth in Texas.

“My hope is to be able to convince people that were not thinking about voting and even aware of the elections to go out and exercise their [voting] rights,” says Garcia.

Garcia was born in Monterrey, Mexico and was raised there until he immigrated to the United States at the age of thirteen in 2008. He is passionate about politics and loves soccer. Garcia is also passionate about learning more about finance and investing. “My goal in life is to be able to make a living out of the stock market and being able to open a charitable trust holding.”

He is hopeful about his future and open to opportunities that will arise after he is done canvassing for Jolt. “I’m just going keep working hard and try to do good in life,” says Garcia.
