This week is the official release of David’s “Live the Dream Tour” documentary chronicling his school tour on the Texas / Mexico border where he inspires 13,000+ students at 15 performances and travels 1,254 miles, 105 hours in 5 days.

In our conversation we discuss:
- Why he decided to do this tour and make the documentary
- The biggest thing he learned from this experience
- How to live YOUR dream
- His experience growing up on the Texas / Mexico border
- How to find your calling in life even if you don't have a “passion”
- How necessity helped David find his passion
- And how what you think are your disadvantages can actually be your biggest advantages
My favorite quote from our conversation:
“Positivity is aggressive! positivity is running uphill with a backpack on saying I am not going to stop until I reach the top. It is very easy to go with the flow and throw in the towel; but it takes a man or woman with character and fortitude to say “I am committed, I am in it to win it, I am not going to let up until it’s done! And that is positivity!” ~ David Edward Garcia
David’s professional Bio:
David is the only 5-language-speaking-motivational-comedian on the planet! David empathizes with diverse students who face challenges because he was once considered an "at-risk student" himself before defying the odds and graduating with a bachelor's degree and then earning his Master’s Degree. He has motivated children and mature adults in some of the greatest metropolitan cities of the world: Los Angeles, New York, Sao Paulo, Paris, and London.
His upbringing facilitated his multi-culturalism/ multi-lingualism which make it easy to relate to diverse audiences. While his native languages are English, and Spanish, David's has also presented in French, and Portuguese in his international tours. (He also speaks Italian, bringing his language total to five—for now.) He was voted North America’s #1 Youth Motivational Comedian by Top Youth Speakers of America in 2013. After he is done speaking, you won’t know if he’s a comedian with an amazing message, or the most hilarious speaker you have ever heard.
