Mario Lozano has a long history with the GAC community. Growing up in the City of Children orphanage in Mexico, Mario developed deep friendships with the many GAC mission teams that visited the orphanage. When you walk across the campus with Mario, you immediately discover that everyone knows his name. His willing spirit and selfless attitude make GAC better each day.
I grew up in the City of Children orphanage in Ensenada, Mexico. The people there helped me develop many life skills and a deep love of God. I was being prepared all along for my future at GAC, but I had never planned or dreamed about coming to America to work and live. Over the years, my friends at GAC told me about opportunities to work in graphic design and coach soccer at the school that poured so much into my life. God has opened many doors in my life.
There is no question. It was during a season opener Spartan football game when the girls soccer team and coaching staff were presented with our State Soccer Championship rings. Many hours of hard work and teamwork paid off.
I was the recipient of love and kindness from many mission teams as a kid. Now I love to go on mission trips back home to City of Children and to City of Angels. Teaching these young kids about God is one of my greatest passions. I am called to serve others and it reminds me where I came from. When I’m not on a mission trip, I’m usually playing soccer.
Most people don’t know I can beat box and love to draw.
When I was young I knew that I wanted to use my creativity to come up with new ideas and designs. There’s nothing like using my skills to create something for GAC and see it have an impact on others. Whether it is a printed piece for Admissions, a brochure about a new school program, or a mission trip T-shirt, my job allows me to share Jesus Christ with others. That’s the most important thing in the world.
