Alex Rodriguez- Roig

President of Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade | MIAMI

Dad to Isabella, 13, and Angelina, 11

“My job is to run Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade, where thousands of children attend many different educational programs at five different locations. I am very passionate about the organization and mission because children are the most vulnerable. We need to provide for them. So, of course, I have the same passion for my own two girls. I spend as much time as I can with them and my family. We all enjoy the outdoors; whether it is fishing in the Keys or camping up north. This is something that was instilled in me by my parents and I am passing it down to my girls.”

The main difference between life before children and life after children is….

I spend more time doing things they like even though I enjoy it just as much.

The greatest rewards of father­hood are:

The greatest challenges of father­hood are:

Hoping that you are teaching them everything you know about life.

The one piece of advice he hopes his kids take most to heart as they go through life:

To do the right thing, and always try your best and find happiness.
