I am the oldest of 6 siblings and father of 4 beautiful children. I came to the U.S. in my mid-teens due to my democratic beliefs and roots being destroyed in my native country, Nicaragua. Here, I became a living example of the American Dream, which professes that with hard work and perseverance anyone can succeed. For the glory and grace of God, while attending school and working full-time, I graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, and later became a bronze medalist and Olympian in the Olympic Trials for Atlanta, 1996; then, inspired by the near-death experience of my earthly father from several heart attacks in his mid-forties, I saved for 12 years, before embarking in my dream of becoming a doctor, something that I accomplished scoring among the best in the nation in my medical exams and my medical residency. Due to my deep belief that it is in giving that we receive, and this is how we let the light of Christ shine, I created a medical study guide which I shared with all the residents in my program, helping us score among the best Family Medicine programs in the nation (see videos: University of Miami/JMH Family Medicine Graduating Class of 2013; Lifting up the name of Jesus). I am by no means wise or strong, but “God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty” (1 Corinthians 1: 27).
