In middle school, I was an individual who wore brightly colored socks with my very bland school uniform. I loved science and thought that I wanted to be a marine biologist when I grew up. Outside of school, I played every sport available.

Marco Mora

During the school year, you can find Marco working as a guidance counselor at North Tahoe School, mentoring for Whole Hearts, Minds, and Bodies, visting plant nurseries and adventuring with his new puppy, Nickel.

In middle school, I lived in a tough neighborhood in south Los Angeles. As a result, my parents put me in a Catholic private school for two years. I have those wonderful two years to thank for helping me be successful in life.
