Diego Silva, from Brazil and pursuing a PhD in Computer Science at Florida Tech, stopped by the WFIT studios to participate in an International Student Spotlight.  Diego spoke with EJ Castor, program host, about the difficulty in leaving behind his fiancée and his family to come to the United States in pursuit of his PhD.  Diego's education is funded by the Brazilian government, a program for which he had to apply to and for which he had to qualify in order to participate.  Diego spoke to members of the Palm Bay / Melbourne Brazilian community in his native language, Portuguese.
