Portrait of Gegi


When I met Gegi, she was enjoying her first time ever at Willow Springs International Raceway. She accompanied her boyfriend to the Shelby Cobra Club event and was able to get a shotgun ride on the track in his race car. She considered it all very exciting and said she was “a little bit nervous, but it was a lot of fun.”

Gegi was originally from Costa Mesa, California, USA. She studied horticulture at Polytechnic State University–San Luis Obispo, then attended Santa Ana College Basic Fire Academy.

Gegi never ended up getting a firefighting job because, while waiting to be placed, she worked as a substitute teacher. Subsequently, her special education job at Edison High School in Huntington Beach, California, USA, “fell into place” after she earned her State credentials, so it must have been her destiny.

Some days, Gegi regretted not being a firefighter, but she really enjoyed what she was doing, so she was essentially a very happy person.
