Eliesel Morales



Eliesel Morales was born and raised in Providence, RI in a place called Hartford Projects. He was raised by a single immigrant mother of four. He grew up in a culture of violence and non-stop drama which ultimately led him down the path of self-destruction, where he found himself addicted to drugs and eventually wound up in prison.

 Eliesel Morales is now thirty years old and he was able to turn his life around. He has traveled to twenty-two states throughout the U.S., as well as six countries around the world. He is an entrepreneur, philanthropist and loving father of three. He is Co-founder of an interactive classified-ad site for the Latino community.

 He recently completed his first turkey drive where he gave away one hundred free-range turkeys to the Latino community. Also he organized a fundraiser where he was able to join Pasha Hookah Bar and Praise Tabernacle Church to raise $630.00 (with two days’ notice) for Project Christmas, a program that provides Christmas gifts for the children of people who are currently incarcerated.

 He is also a member of the Black and Latino Alliance of Providence. A newly formed group dedicated to building harmonious relationships and finding common ground between the two influential cultures.

 Eliesel is determined to have a positive impact on this planet. He will do this by connecting with like-minded individuals and merging his life’s' experiences along with the tools that he acquires from the NLC, to help him resonate deeply with the community and at-risk youth. He will encourage different approaches to age old problems to inspire productivity and positive progress throughout society.
