I was born and raised in Southern California, my full name is Saul Gaona Jr.. Both of my parents were born in southern California as well, my fathers parents (Mardoqueo Gaona & Elpidia Gaona) are from Jalisco Guadalajara, Mexico. The surname Gaona is such a unique name, that out of these 21 years of my life I've only met one other kid growing up who shared the same last name as me. His name was Alejandro Gaona and we both grew up in Paramount, California. My father is the only son from my grandparents, and I have younger brother (Samuel Gaona). In my family tree of Gaona men my Brother and I are the only two left to carry on our last name.
