Jorge Andrés Galicia Rodríguez from Venezuela



My name is Jorge Andrés Galicia Rodríguez, I´m a 22 years old freedom fighter currently living in Venezuela under a socialist authoritarian dictatorship in seek of totalitarian power. I grew up in a middle class home, my parents provided me with the best education possible for their income since the beginning. Unluckily and thanks to socialism, my family income has shrunken to critical levels, degrading our levels of quality of life to standards never known by us before.

I´ve been an activist for freedom since I began my career at late 2013. My passion for liberty started when I first met “CEDICE Libertad” think tank. They taught me the basics of a free society through many different pro-liberty and educational events and I became a big fan. Then, when I started defining myself as liberty minded activist, I began my search of a political party believer and defender of the principles that a free society builds up on and I certainly found that at Vente Venezuela and in the leadership of María Corina Machado. There, I was in charge of the ideological training of the junior regional team of activists from Caracas for two years in a row (2014-2015). We worked with the material of some liberty favorites authors like Ludwig von Mises, Frederich Hayek, Frederic Bastiat and so many more. Simultaneously, I joined the student movement from my University, where I also performed the role of political and ideological training coordinator. Also I was a regional coordinator from Students for Liberty and I founded an aggrupation of students named “Club Laissez Faire” dedicated to the promotion of the ideas of liberty inside the campus.

This political journey has provided me with many successes and good experiences like winning the first debate championship organized by Vente Venezuela with my regional team, being selected to Project 50 which was a project organized by Vente to improve the abilities of the 50 more promising leaders working with the party, winning an scholarship from the organization “Futuro Presente” to study a 6 months long diplomat organized by the Universidad Católica Andrés Bello (UCAB), Universidad Metropolitana and the Instituto de Estudios Superiores de Administración (IESA) about leadership and oil industry named “Venezuela, liderazgo y petróleo”, etc.

I´ve been fighting for freedom for many years from now and I have sacrifice a lot for this cause, from free time to spend at parties with my friends to the possibility of living a risk free life because of the dangers that brings the fact of doing opposition to the current socialist regime. I wish to keep fighting till the end of my days. Two months ago I finished my Law degree at the Universidad Católica Andrés Bellowith a lot of economic sacrifice and now I´m looking forward for my new educational challenges. Thankfully I´ve been selected to be part of this Raise Me To The Top Campaign, which is the third and last phase of the selection process to be part of the new generation of Project Arizona, a program that perfectly fits my aspirations. I truly hope to count with your help to keep fighting socialism or any other kind or statism here in my homeland.
