ECNC-Yadkin County Team Advisor & Southeast Region Co-Representative: Moises Serrano

Moises was born in Cancun, Mexico and came to the U.S. when he was only one year old due to extreme poverty. Moises graduated from Starmount High School with a 3.7 GPA but could not attend even a community college due to his immigration status. Moises joined El Cambio in October of 2010 and just a week later he declared his status about being an undocumented immigrant publicly, the first to ever do so in Yadkin County. He was later featured in The Huffington Post (article can be found in Media Section), among many publications. Through years of experiences, he now focuses on coordinating mutual efforts between El Cambio and the United We Dream network. He was recently selected as one of the National Coordinating Committee (NCC) representatives for the Southeast Region and is in charge of networking with surrounding ally organizations. Moises dreams of being a regional journalist to expose obscure social justice causes.




ECNC-Salem Tech Team Coordinator & Web Administrator: Martin Rodriguez
Martin graduated from Starmount High School and later attended North Carolina State University. He committed to the organization since September 2010 because of its service-minded nature. Through development, he has been a featured speaker in the UNC Asheville's Segregation in Higher Education event, Mr. Risso's Wake Forest School of Divinity project presentation, UNC Chapel Hill's Freedom Riders Panel Discussion, held private discussions with NC Congressional Representative Virginia Foxx on multiple occasions, and was a panelist at Forsyth Technical Community College's Philosophical Society Debate. As Web Administrator and coordinator, he assures Dreamers and allies have insightful resources at their disposal, members develop leadership skills, and website inefficiencies are properly addressed. Privileged to attend Marquette University, Martin dreams of devising novel methods for delivering preventive medicine and of leading medical teams through the Catholic Relief Services agency.

ECNC-Yadkin County Team Coordinator & Fundraising Lead: Silvia Rodriguez

Silvia graduated from Starmount High School in 2011 and is now a full time student at Forsyth Technical Community College. She has been an amazing volunteer and temporary team leader, especially in regards to managing updates during actions of high transit media as well as budgeting donations appropriately. Because of her "No Dreamer Left Behind" transport policy and financial managing skills, Silvia was promoted to the organization's Fundraising Chair and Transportation Lead positions. Here is a brief statement from Silvia: "Working with El Cambio, and all of its amazing members, I feel like anything is possible. We will make a change for the betterment of not only hundreds of people's lives, but also for the country as a whole." Silvia dreams of being a professional psychologist to guide adolescents in their lives and struggles.




ECNC-Surry County Team Advisor & Political Analyst: Giovanna Hurtado

Giovanna graduated from Elkin High School in '08 and since then has established several outstanding judicial relations such as that of the chief judge of the U.S. District Court for the middle district of North Carolina, James A. Beaty, Jr. and Magistrate Judge, Patrick Auld. Giovanna began participating in several of El Cambio's general meetings in early September of 2011 and soon, she fearlessly declared her status during the DREAM Sabbath campaign at Divine Redeemer Catholic Church in Boonville. Due to her dedication, she was promoted to the Political Analyst position, she now determines the team's influential targets through extensive research. Giovanna dreams of becoming a professional dental hygienist in underdeveloped communities.
