Alexandra Moreno is passionate about social justice and equity. She is involved in multiple cultural groups, youth activism, and leveling the education inequality across Chicago. Her goals for the year are to experience and appreciate Ecuadorian Culture while also pushing herself out of her comfort zone to experience the larger world around her. Her favorite quote is by one of her role models, Chance the Rapper: "depending on the story that you're telling, you can be relatable to everybody or nobody. I try and tell everybody's story."
