Moris was born in San Salvador, El Salvador and immigrated to the United States at the age of three, where he was raised in the communities of Watts and South Central, Los Angeles. He is the first in his family to graduate high school and attend university. Moris is a third-year studying International Development Studies at UCLA. As a system impacted undocumented student, who has overcome homelessness, he hopes to uplift Black and Latinx youth from his communities who are confronting similar experiences.
The financial turbulence that resulted from his father’s incarceration in 2018 made it necessary for him and his undocumented mother to create a consistent source of income. In the midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Moris financed the establishment of a beauty salon in South Central, Los Angeles. In order to provide the business with an online profile, Moris began learning front-end web development and created its website. During this process, Moris developed a passion for programming and design.
