Daniel Miguel

Class of 2017

Daniel was born in Miami and is a first generation Cuban-American. As student at Miami Dade College, he was appointed as the Director of Governmental Affairs and served in this role until his election as the Student Body President of the Kendall Campus in 2012. After working on local, state, and national political campaigns, he decided that political organizing was not in his future and instead, pivoted towards a career in environmental conservation. It was the work and the words of Dr. Sylvia Earle, Jane Goodall, Edward O. Wilson, that inspired him to fight for the preservation of the environment and to protect endangered species. Daniel is passionate about philanthropy, education, environmental policy, and wildlife conservation and hopes to attend law school in the coming years.
