The award nomination is in the category for Outstanding Performer in a Children's or Pre-school Children's Series, and it marked his first as a series lead. He’s also been nominated for several acting awards and won a few.

This scholarship is a "full-ride," and it is awarded to six Canadian students that "demonstrate academic accomplishment, leadership qualities, and original thought and creative ability."He's pursuing a double major, Philosophy and Film Studies.  

From Canada, Jadiel is proud of his unique cultural background. His parents emigrated from Panama, instilling the importance of fluently speaking Spanish, while also embracing his Afro-Caribbean heritage. This helps to explain his appreciation of multi-cultural music, flavorful foods, and his affinity for learning new accents.
