VoyageMIA interview

Today we’d like to introduce you to Niurka Castaneda.
Niurka, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I grow up in Cuba and I come from a family of entrepreneurs and artists. My grandfather was a poet, my parent’s Cuban entrepreneurs. They were very resourceful people and why I believe I have been enterprising and artistic. My family moved to Miami because of the political and social situation. Our journey is like many others immigrating to the US, we were looking for the opportunity to succeed on our own and give the family a better quality of life.
Personally, I felt the call to serve my new home and a year after arriving joined the Army, to serve this great country. It was one of the most rewarding and challenging decisions I have ever made. The military offered me many new experiences where I learned skills like resilience, flexibility, self-motivation, determination, self-discipline, goal setting, risk tolerance. At the time the Army motto was “ Be all you can be” I loved it, and I live by it. The skills I learned from the Army serve me well even today. READ MORE
