Marco Contreras has lived the American Dream and knows that there is no other place on the globe that would have allowed him to accomplish all that he has in life. He has experienced the goodness of our country, and our city, and he wants you and your kids to have the same experience.
Marco was born in San Diego, but grew up across the border in Tijuana, Mexico. In high school, Marco pursued his dream of playing football in the United States and began crossing the border daily to attend Marian Catholic High School in Chula Vista. He vividly recalls not speaking English and communicating with his peers and teachers through signs and smiles.
