Today is Give Miami Day.
The foundation of Extra Virgin Press lies upon the neighborhoods we have always worked in, and the many students that have enriched my life. My time in public schools brought me “minions”, but also an education that could only come from young people from around the world, The presses raise their voices in the community.
