     Miami-Dade County Commissioner Sen. Rene Garcia was a Career Day speaker for advanced eighth-grade students at Bob Graham Education Center in Miami Lakes.  

     Garcia visited the school on Dec. 16 to describe his upbringing, how he became a politician, the obstacles he faced and the duties of public service. 

    “He used his story as a motivator for the students to be able to accomplish whatever their goals are in life,” David Marin, an aide to Garcia, said in an email. 

     Principal Yecenia Martinez said Garcia spoke to students in a class led by teachers Jackie Arrojo-Hernandez and Katrina Herrero. Garcia represents District 13, which includes the Town of Miami Lakes
