Xavier Bryan

By 2015, the thought of becoming a photographer had never crossed my mind. In fact, I wasn’t sure of what I wanted to do with my life after I graduated high school.

Alvina Lam

A Silicon Valley, California native, I grew up in an immigrant family dreaming of designing clothing.

Jose Mizrahi

I arrived to Miami ten years ago, where I finished high school; a time where my entrepreneurial spirit got me going in several projects.

The latest one, an online platform which offers the benefit of fitness, dance and wellness to our community at no cost during the tough times of quarantine. Read more>>
