Jose Diaz is a Venezuelan/Cuban American who arrived to the United States at the age of 3 by crossing the U.S/Mexican Border in 1987. Jose was raised in Miami, Florida and graduated from Miami Sunset Senior High. When he looked into going to college, he faced the harsh reality that many undocumented immigrant youth face in the United States: no viable opportunity to go to college due to immigration status.

Jose recently started his own small accounting business that helps local small business owners and residents.
