“I’m a sucker for human connection,” admits Garcia. Forgoing the typical role of a self-promoting social media maven akin to her peers, Garcia relies on the romance of old-school communication. She prefers to call over text, sends letters over e-mails, and takes her time to wait for the right projects. “People are always like, ‘You’re so earthy!’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, that’s because I know what it’s like to have a job.” A girl after our own hearts.
“I feel like I know who I am and I know where I come from, and I think that’s a very powerful thing out here where people are constantly trying to become what’s popular or change who they are.” If that’s not life advice for the ages, we don’t know what is.
