Faces of TXGU: Gustavo

Created By: Texas GEAR UP

Big Picture: Family is everything for Del Rio High School sophomore, aspiring artist, and history buff Gustavo. His parents moved to Texas from Mexico so that he and his siblings could have a chance at a better life, and now he's totally honoring those wishes by preparing himself for college—AND inspiring his brothers and sister to do the same. Watch the video to see how Gustavo's participation in Texas GEAR UP has helped him hunt down and apply for scholarships, become a better test-taker, and find his favorite college. Oh, and it also made him king...
