Adolfo “Fifo” Bermúdez was born in Managua, Nicaragua, and grew up in San Salvador, El Salvador, where he attended bilingual schools that gave him a foundation in the English language. In 2005, Fifo received a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing, from Ave Maria College, then returned to San Salvador where he worked for Dell Computers. Fifo later moved back to Nicaragua to work as a houseparent at an orphanage on the outskirts of the capital of Managua.
Fifo met and married a Memphian at this position, and they moved to the United States in the summer of 2013. Since that time, Fifo has worked at the Community Legal Center, where in November 2015 he became a Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) accredited representative. When he is not assisting the immigrant population of Memphis, Fifo enjoys playing the ukulele, painting, drawing, and riding his skateboard.
