Wanda Beniquez, was born on October 16, 1964 in Isabella, Puerto Rico. She moved to New York when she was 9 years old and relocated to Miami in 1987. Ms. Beniquez joined Miami En Accion (MIA) in its early stages in 2006 (formally known as ‘Comite de Vivienda’).· She was a part of the longest Miami-Dade Housing Agency waiting list for close to 10 years, which was the catalyst that inspired her to join the fight for public housing. For her efforts in fighting for the "Fill the Vacancies" campaign, she was able to receive her own public housing in the Liberty City Housing Projects, where she currently lives.
