Luis Moros (he/him/his) left Venezuela for Miami with his mom when he was only 14 years old and faced homelessness, a language barrier, and an unknown educational system. As of today, Luis works with policymakers in the nation’s capital towards a more civic-engaged community and effective immigration policies. As a leader of two key Florida International University initiatives: FIU in Washington D.C. and the Maurice A. Ferré Institute for Civic Leadership, he aims to help other immigrants achieve their dreams, just like he did.
During his five years in the United States, Luis has become an effective communicator, strong advocate for human rights, education, and immigration and has worked and conducted research with reputable think tanks and non-profits, including with the U.S House of Representatives within the Chairwoman of the Appropriations Committee, the Cato Institute, the Organization of American States, and the Bipartisan Policy Center.
Luis is pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a Bachelor of Science in Public Policy, including certificates in Pre-Law and Civic Leadership at Florida International University.
