Hialeah’s Rising Stars

The heart of our mission at VoyageMIA is to find the amazing souls that breathe life into our city. In the recent weeks, we’ve had the privilege to connect with some of the Miami’s finest artists, creatives, entrepreneurs and rabble rousers and we can’t begin to express how impressed we are with our city’s incredibly deep talent pool.  Check out Hialeah’s rising stars below.

Gen Venom

I started taking an interest in fashion and modeling when I was 15, I’m 22 now. I remember being a sophomore in high school and I started to dress different than everybody else, not on purpose, but because I began my journey on figuring out who I was and what I’m into. Read more>>

Andres Restrepo, Camilo and Santiago Jaramillo

Back in early 2015 Camilo, Santiago, and I were working jobs that we felt weren’t making us happy and fulfilling a greater purpose. We wanted to create an environment in which we enjoyed what we were doing while making an impact on the world. Instead of just sitting around and daydreaming of what could be, we took the plunge and decided to do something about it. Read more>>

Adrian Rivero

While working at another design studio I realized I wasn’t happy. The quality of work we were producing was basic, very one dimensional. No imagination, no drive. It was pretty much the same process with every client, rinse and repeat. I wanted something different. Read more>>

Hyacinth Henderson

I started my career in financial services 16 years ago. Well, actually it started about 28 years ago when I was running my father’s snow-cone business at the tender age of nine years old. My dad, a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ needed cheap labor for his side gig so he “hired” me, my brother and my cousin to make ice, syrup and work 16 hour days at festivals such as Lollapalooza. Read more>>

Obdulio Piloto

I was raised in a loving, low-income, traditional Cuban family in Hialeah, Florida. Early on, school was a challenging struggle to me, probably due to my mild dyslexia and introversion. However, soon I discovered a love for the sciences, and doubled down on my school efforts. Read more>>
