Over 40 years ago my stepdad Luis Concepcion floated 90 miles from Cuba to Miami on a beaten up raft. As fate would have it, he later met my mom in Goldsboro, NC and we all moved to Miami. The choice to leave my home was tough, but I wouldn't change it for the world. My mom, brother and I have experienced and seen multiple cultures all under the Latin, Haitian, and carribean umbrella and it shaped us to become open minded thinkers in contrast to the white/black issues we had back home.
We didn't have much, but being able to wake up to warm weather, beaches, boats, salsa, meringue and great food EVERYDAY is one of the best feelings in the world and encouraged us to explore the unknown. THIS is why I absolutely LOVE Miami and all the people that I've met along the way. #Miami #Cuba #Libre #Wynwood #JacksonHigh #BookerT #36J #CarolCity #Jitney #Flagler #Overtown
