Luis Corril Serrano is a first-generation Mexican American born and raised in the neighborhood of Historic South Central in Los Angeles, California. As the eldest son of undocumented immigrant parents, Luis is acutely familiar with the hardships, sacrifices, and triumphs low-income and undocumented immigrants face in this nation. As the product of the public education system, government-subsidized healthcare and enrichment programs, Luis understands and appreciates the value of government investments in its people.
As a first-generation, low-income college student at Yale University, Luis intends to major in Economics with a certification in Statistics and Data Science. Outside of the classroom, Luis is Co-VP of Professional Development at Sube: Yale Latinx Pre-Professional Student Association and Treasurer at the Migration Alliance at Yale, enabling Luis to pursue his passions for immigration and Latino empowerment causes. After Yale, Luis hopes to apply the knowledge and skills from his education to better help his community and city via public policy.
As a CHCI Intern, Luis looks forward to developing and refining his leadership and public speaking skills, all the while learning firsthand the legislative process at the national level. Ultimately, Luis hopes to apply this experience towards his goal of serving his community as a Los Angeles Council District member.
