On growing up along with Miami

We arrived in May of 1959. I remember going with my mom looking for a place to rent and her being very upset about reading signs that said NO CUBANS. My dad actually got a job parking cars when he first came from Cuba…

So I’ve kind of grown up along with Miami, and Emilio and I are very fortunate to feel a part of the growth of this city. If anybody’s anywhere in the world and they say they’re from Miami, they ask them if they know me! We really live in paradise.
