Diomedes: de joven desempleado a mecánico eléctrico automotriz

Diomedes de la Rosa Núñez es ciudadano de República Dominicana. Nació en Santo Domingo, en la parte este de la ciudad, muy cerca del mar Caribe. Su madre y su padre siempre los impulsaron a él y a sus cuatro hermanos mayores a estudiar y prepararse para la vida; por ello Diomedes cada día continúa esforzándose por darle lo mejor a su familia, de la cual se encuentra por el momento alejado.  Debido a las complejas circunstancias que atravesaba su país natal, Diomedes decidió emigrar el día 06 de mayo de 2015, hacia Ecuador, buscando nuevas oportunidades.
