One Sentence About Me  

"Seed is cheap. Soil is expensive...take your little and watch how God will turn it into a lot."- Rick Wilkerson

Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born in Caracas, Venezuela came here with my family in 2004. After graduating in 2020, I continued my education at Polk State College to further educate myself on Business and Marketing. I have been a very faithful man since I was born, and have gone through many things where they have shaped me to be more faithful and stronger. The biggest one that has shaped me was being diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis July 2019, and being able to finish senior year with a 4.0 GPA, and more than half of my credits for my AA done all while going to doctors. Later on I was further forged in my faith by later on in Covid-19 being diagnosed with Crohns disease (my disease progressed) in June 2020. The struggle of losing weight, not seeing friends, not having anyone to relate to me completely changed my life. I went from being someone who lives comfortably to seeking discomfort because no day on Earth is promised, and I want to impact as many people and work as hard and smart as I can to bring success out of me and onto this planet, so others can be inspired that even when your whole world and body crumbles you have the strength to take those pieces and build something even stronger.

Interesting Factoid

I love encouraging others, and that is why I am starting a podcast on Anchor called JUNTOS Podcast. https://anchor.fm/anchorfmjuntos
