At the age of 4, Walter’s family moved from Nicaragua to the United States in hopes for a better life. From an early age, Walter was mentored by his grandparents in the art of leadership and entrepreneurship. Taking their advice to heart, Walter started his own business three years ago. "Nothing compares to being your own boss," he says.
