Juscelino Kubitschek, or JK as he was often known, was born on December 12, 1902, in Diamantina, Minas Gerais. His father, who worked as a traveling salesman, died when Juscelino was two years old. The future president was thus raised by his mother, a schoolteacher of Czech and Roma descent. He was educated at a Seminary School in Diamantina, where he was an average student. He was enrolled in medical school at the Federal University of Minas Gerais in Belo Horizonte at age 20, graduating as a medical doctor seven years later. Kubitschek then left for Europe, living in Paris and Berlin. He returned to Brazil after the Revolution of 1930.
