DR. LUIS A. DE LA VEGA, CHAIRMAN

A natural born linguist, fluent in nine languages, Dr. Luis de la Vega has had a passion for languages since his early childhood in Havana, Cuba. He is a native Spanish speaker who by the age of 12, had taught himself French and German. Like many other Cuban children at the time of the revolution, his parents sent him to live with family in Miami, FL at the age of 14. Having attended an American school in Cuba, he had learned English as a child and once he arrived in the US, his love for language only continued to grow. He was a frequent visitor of the local library where he’d check out books in Russian, German, Italian, and French for some extracurricular fun!
