As teenagers in high school, Luis Tinoco and Dulce Garcia rolled in different circles. Tinoco was the loud guy in the hallways, always cracking jokes.
“And I was the opposite,” Garcia said. “Really quiet, really shy, really serious.”
“That’s why I never talked to her, because she was always with that mean face,” Tinoco said jokingly.
Garcia said she wasn’t mean, just focused. She was a steadfast 16-year-old with a 20-year plan.
