Juan Diego grew up in the city of Bogota, Colombia. From a very early age he took a love for preserving the environment, care for animals, and wanted his streets, fields, forests and waterways clean and free of pollution. He moved to the Sammamish area at the age of thirteen and graduated from Skyline High School. In the past he has volunteered with the Seattle Holocaust Center for Humanity and interned with the K.D. Hall Foundation promoting female equality in the workspace. Currently, Juan Diego is a student at the University of Washington. In his free time, he likes to play video games, fence, ski, collect hats and has a minor hobby for cinema.
