Miami — the United States’ most international city — is alive. It is multicolored and young and vibrant. Its residents come from around the country and the world, chasing freedom or music or excitement. And their passion propels the city forward, sometimes melding perfectly, other times clashing violently.
It all makes for some great stories.
Neyda Borges graduated from the University of Miami and then spent two years trying to figure out what to do with the rest of her life. She fell into teaching and is now the Language Arts Department chair at Miami Lakes Educational Center, teaching English and journalism. She was 2011 Region I Teacher of the Year, and district finalist. In 2015 she was one of 10 teachers honored by Univision as ‘Una Maestra Especial,’ and in 2019 she received the Yale Educator award. She reads, writes, and is still tying to figure out what she’s going to do when she grows up. https://www.linkedin.com/in/neydaborges
