José is originally from Panamà, but he moved to Georgia when he was young, so Atlanta is his home away from home. In his last year of school at Kennesaw, he’s majoring in Apparel & Textile Technology, and he works at the Tough Boot & Co, a men’s luxury vintage store. His true passion is the study of social equity and engaging in social-political activism whenever possible. To cool off (or rather heat up) after a long week of school and work, José likes to go salsa dancing to reconnect to his Afro-Latin roots.
