Early life, family, and immigration to the United States 

Miguel was born and raised in Santiago de Cuba, Cuba

He had a family, including his mother, father, brother, and sister

His home was always filled with cousins who came to Santiago to study

Bezos remembers his household to be full of life.

Miguel's dad was an entrepreneur. He had no formal education, but he had a tremendous mind for business

He owned a log mill where he would buy timber from other locations, cut it into various sizes, and sell it for construction. 

Meanwhile, his mother mostly stayed at home, but she also had a store of her own where she sold baby clothes and textiles

There had been many activities in Cuba by activists to try and get rid of Batista for many years before Castro's rise to power.

During that time, the government of Cuba had different plans. 

A large majority wanted to re-establish the government and take Batista out of power

Various violent acts were happening during that time, causing a long-lasting effect in the minds of the Cuban people and Bezos's family.

Miguel knew he had no future staying in Cuba, so he was sent to America

He landed in Miami and was shipped with about 400 kids to a catholic high school

After high school, he got accepted into the University of Albuquerque in New Mexico

He graduated in 1968 and met Jacklyn, a Spanish woman.
