With God’s help, at 24 years old, Mr. Borgelin migrated to the eastern and mid-west of USA, then finally settled in South Florida. He met and married the lovely Dorothy Suzan, from which union issued three blessed handsome boys: Shamyr, Shamarly, and Shanyder. Since November 1997, the family adopted North Lauderdale as their definitive home. With the support of his wife, Mr. Borgelin studied Business Management, Advanced Theology, and Psychology. He earns his master degrees in Guidance and School Counseling, and Mental Health from Trinity International University. Mr. Borgelin initiated Churches Community Youth Booster, a local mentoring and educational ministry targeting children, youths and families at-risk. He taught the game of soccer for over 10 years, in North Lauderdale.

He considers this new position not a job, but a cause that can bring meaningful differences in the lives of the people of North Lauderdale. He is dedicated to hear and listen to the concerns, and ideas about his community in order to create and develop an intimate, and supportive relationship, and to keep an ongoing open dialogue between the constituency and the city.
