A Personal Introduction

This is the post excerpt.


My name is Diego Mendoza, I was born in Maracaibo, Venezuela nearly 18 years ago. At the age of Seven I moved to the United States, old enough to remember where i came from. Because of this I still have deep ties to my home country, and actively participate in the Venezuelan community back home in Miami. I love Soccer, or futbol as i prefer to call it, and played for my High School during my Freshman and Sophomore years, now I play the game for fun. Other than Soccer, I also play golf, which I took up so i could spend more time with my father, and Basketball, a sport that I find immensely entertaining to watch. My father is an electrical engineer, who has managed to establish a successful company despite his humble beginnings, I consider him a great source of pride and motivation. I aim to follow in his footsteps, and become an electrical engineer, right now im in the Gator Engineering@Santa Fe program, and i hope this will be the first step in a long and challenging journey towards accomplishing that goal.

I consider myself a Cinephile, I am very fond of Film, I find the medium is the most effective way to translate real human experiences and emotions into quality entertainment. I am a huge fan of the Star Wars series of films, and the expanded universe that they inhabit. I am also very interested in music, I love classic Rock and Roll, and modern Hip Hop, two very different genres I know. Back home in Miami, I was in a band with my friends, I played the guitar, lets just say we weren’t very good. My biggest passion is Traveling, I love the world and the people that inhabit it. I spend most of my free time studying Geography and History, I want to be a knowledgeable traveller, my dream is to travel the world one day, and experience everything it has to offer.
