Spotlight on Elyssa Garcia
Freelance artist Elyssa Garcia is just one of the countless young people who aspire and wish to become a full-time artist. Elyssa Garcia is well aware that there are so many like her but this fact does not dampen her spirit but rather motivates her even more.
Elyssa Garcia may be new to the entertainment industry but she has shown surprising maturity beyond her years. That for me makes her quite unique from the rest of her young peers who are also trying to make it in the entertainment industry. I see potential in her. There is also that feistiness about her which will serve her well down the road as she takes her journey in the entertainment industry. That is why I have decided to do a feature on her.
I do seek out those who I believe deserve a shot at fame, a push in the right direction, or that much needed boost in their careers as an artist. And I still do this because I know it is the right thing to do and it is something I have always championed for, for many years already.
This is Elyssa Garcia’s very first solo feature and interview done with her.
