By continuing to be active in sports, in 1989 I was awarded a university scholarship in the sport of volleyball and basketball. It is there, when I start my studies in the Quality Control branch. That year was very special for me, since on May 6 I met my wife, Madelyn Cruz Padilla, today. The woman who has blessed me with my 4 beautiful children, Santiago V, Michael Adrián, Giovanni and my princess, Dakysha Lyann. In that same year is when I know what the Market Network Industry is with a perfume company. To publicize and promote the product you had to go door to door.
In May 1987, I graduated from high school. Then I continued my studies and in 1988 I graduated from Computer Programming. Back then I had the vision that the world would be dominated by computers and if I am sure of one thing it is that I am not mistaken. That same year I started a job in that field and the funny thing is that an employee of the company where I worked broke my dream of being a Computer Programmer.
Over the course of those years I learned that my father’s salary as a middle school math teacher was not enough for him to live on and he had to find a second source of income. Having no one to leave me to take care of, on weekends, he would take me to work with him in his new company.
From my childhood I can tell you that at the age of 4 I was about to die from a kidney condition, but God allowed me to live for a purpose that I did not understand and that was to be able to help people.
