Short Bio Derek Angel Ruiz age 19 born June 15th, 1997 to Puerto Rican father Neron Ruiz and Mexican mother Maria Ruiz Derek was born in Puerto Rico where his parents had originally met before moving to Chihuahua, Mexico at the age of 2 where they'd raise Derek up until he was 17 before once again relocating this time to the United States after receiving their green cards Derek is best described as out going when speaking in his native tongue Spanish however he is a bit more on the shy side when speaking in English as he is still not confident with his limited education on the language however the boys (mainly Diego and Luis) have been working on teaching him English and while he's still not the completely fluent in the language he can get by in a conversation Derek had developed a passion for music at the age of 12 when he had picked up his first guitar which was mostly self taught but his father would also take time out to help him really perfect his craft Derek didn't develop a love for singing however until later on in life at the age of 16 drawing inspiration from other Latino artists and covering some of his favorites songs Derek auditioned for SYNCO: The Big Search with very limited vocal training his voice is lighter in tone and has a unique factor to it he made it through the singing rounds easily what was more of a challenge for him were the interview rounds where he had to show is personality he passed the Spanish interviews with ease coming off as charming and social the English interviews were a bit more of a challenge and almost caused him to be eliminated all together coming off as slightly more awkward and quiet during these ones he made up for it in the dancing department though as he seems to have a natural rhythm despite having no training in this area Derek was the third boy put into the group and is seen as the cute and charming one

Short Bio Luis Miguel Alvarez age 20 was born July 28th, 1996 to Joel and Nicole Alvarez he was born in Miami, Florida and grew up learning both English and Spanish since the age of 8 Luis had developed a strong love for sports and music however sports has always been his #1 passion he had been training to make it as a professional Fútbol(soccer) player but his career was put to halt due to a major injury during a school game without being able to play again instead of shutting everybody out and slipping into a depression which he almost did Luis turned to his second passion music he began writing at the age of 15 around the time he had gotten the injury he also began playing piano and singing at this age upon hearing about the auditions for the group Luis went into it with a "why not" attitude and gave it a try after getting through the first round of performing he began to get more serious about the competition he got through the vocal half of the competition with a strong showing his vocals weren't stand out nor were they at all weak in his performances but he definitely brought an energy which really gave him an edge, during the interviews Luis really shined showing his funny side here more coming off as hilarious and charming dancing was a bit of a struggle due to his previous leg injury but he did manage to pull through and was the second official member announced for the group which once again wasn't a shock as he like Diego was one of the favorites early one especially in the interview rounds where he really got his chance to shine in the group Diego is seen as the funny one and the"bro"

Short Bio: Evan Michael Cabrera age 18 was born February 22nd, 1998 to Alejándro and Sierra Cabrera he was born in San Jose California Evan grew up with three older brothers who had definitely toughened him up he learned English and Spanish and can speak both fluently before the group Evan had quite the history constantly getting into fights at school, at home and anywhere else he could find one he is known to be a bit of a hot head but has calmed down since with the introduction to art and music at the age of 16 he began painting, singing and writing lyrics he used it as a way to get his emotions out creatively rather than physically advice given to him by the schools guidance counselor Evan auditioned for the group with no previous experience other than what he had at home in the performances he shined he delivering passionate vocals when needed and fun vocals when needed his voice was described as similar to Diego's being powerful and having a similar tone however there was a sort of untamed charm to his voice and a sort of rasp that brought it over the top during these rounds he was a fan favorite up there with the likes of Luis and Diego however it was during the interviews that he had lost some steam as he spoke without filter he would swear and speak about controversial matters without thinking of the consequences he did manage to make it through these rounds but only because of how well he had delivered in the previous one by the time the dance auditions came around he was hit or miss delivering strong performances in some rounds and decent performances in others Evan was the fourth official member which came as a shock to some after the interview rounds it seemed like he'd be eliminated for sure however the girls seen some sort of fire that he brought and decided with proper training he could be an amazing addition Evan is outspoken and isn't afraid to call out anything he sees unfair despite that though he's usually rather quiet and artistic which gives him the appearance of the bad boy/mysterious one in the group
