Unfortunately, Jaime didn’t get to enjoy a lifetime with him, but he succeeded in keeping his memories alive by writing. His mom, Mrs. Dulce Garcia-Dias was an architect. She too was an instrument of encouragement that fueled Jaime’s passion. Soon, Jaime graduated high school and continued his education at the UFRJ (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro). He was among the institution’s top-achievers who graduated with honors.
