Meet James Harden

As a first generation Cuban-American raised in a single-parent household, James understands the struggles that South Florida families face every day.

While attending Florida International University, James improved the lives of his fellow students by working to provide quality facilities and activities for his fellow students. He has a compassionate approach to public service, and hopes to bring that approach to the Florida House of Representatives.

James was raised in Olympia Heights. He attended Florida Christian School, before attending Florida International University, where he was a founding brother of his fraternity as well as involved in the Student Government Association. James graduated from the University of South Carolina School of Law, where he was a member of the Christian Legal Society and the American Constitutional Society.
