My name is Nelson Santiago. I was born in Boston, MA.,, but was raised in Puerto Rico until I was 4 years old. I then moved to Florida and have been here since. I have strong family ties and grew up in a beautiful environment of love and care. I have always loved sports and exercise as well as school and in my high school years I excelled in each of them, graduating with a 3.2 GPA as well as playing baseball, the sport I love with all my heart. I am passionate about chasing goals and achieving them, hence why I aspire to go to college and become a better person in the future. In college I wish to study Orthodontia both because it is something I love but also I love the feeling of helping others and that career will help me do that.There is a legacy that runs in my family, my dad and both of his brothers are Dental Technicians. They got there associates and practiced this profession. For a long time I grew up helping them out and slowly grew to fall in love with the environment and the work involved.
