Emilio Feijóo – 2016-2017, Study, United Kingdom
Hey! My name is Emilio E. Feijóo and I was born in Bayamo, Cuba and came to the states when I was two years old. I lived my childhood in Miami and then moved to Naples, FL. I am currently the Director of Marketing at The Law Offices of Marc L. Shapiro, P.A. I received two bachelor’s at Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) in #EnglishLiterature and #Philosophy. In 2016, I was a Fulbright Fellow to the United Kingdom at the University of #Essex where I completed a Master’s in Ideology and Discourse Analysis. In 2019, I graduated with another Master’s from the University of Cambridge with a focus on public intellectuals.
I am an international scholar and have presented my work on #poetry, #politicaltheory, and #philosophy in Florida, Louisiana, Tennessee, the United Kingdom, Belgium, the Netherlands, Martinique and Spain. I have been on organizing conference committees at #FGCU and England. I have also published in international journals philosophy articles, book reviews, and translations.
I have been featured in FGCU’s 360 magazine (2016, 2018) , Newsweek, and was mentioned in Congress by House Representative Francis Rooney (R-FL 19th District) for being a Fulbright recipient in SWFL. Recently, I was honored by the Sociology Department at the University Cambridge with the annual Polity Prize (2019). After returning from the University of Cambridge, he teamed up with Marc L. Shapiro, P.A. — a socially aware personal injury attorney — to learn about the legal profession and help my community in Naples, FL. My professionalism is matched by his tenacity for motivating my peers, colleagues, and friends to achieve their goals through critical thinking, empathy, and perseverance.
