Luis Solorzano

Luis Solorzano is an 18-year-old Peruvian North Carolinian. He cares about the language barrier that is preventing the Hispanic community from communicating with one another in his local area. He believes this barrier is preventing his community from going above and beyond as a family and at the individual level. He continued his educational journey at Appalachian State University and plans to attend law school once he finishes his four years as an undergrad. He plans on being a political figure to make sure he can represent and advocate for the Hispanic community.
