Alexandra Lúgaro

Independent Politician

Alexandra Lúgaro was born on June 10, 1981 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. She graduated from the High School of the University of Puerto Rico at the age of 15 and was admitted to the University of Puerto Rico where she earned her Bachelor's degree in Business Administration with triple concentration in Finance, Marketing and Economics and subsequently her Juris Doctor.

In 2014, she obtained her Masters of Laws (LL.M.) from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, where she is currently finishing her Doctorate in Financial and Taxation Law. 

During the last decade she has served as Executive Director of corporations America Aponte and Associates and The Metropolitan New School of America, where she has drafted competitive proposals for federal and state funds with which to implement innovative science-based educational initiatives in Puerto Rico. For the last 15 years, she has successfully directed dozens of educational projects and millionaire budgets, improving student academic achievement in over 500 schools in Puerto Rico.

On the other hand, through her private practice as a lawyer, she has provided legal assistance to those who are unfamiliar with the judicial system and can’t afford adequate legal representation.

Faced with the notable deterioration in the social, economic and educational frameworks of the island, AlexandraLúgaro has decided to do something on the matter; she will aspire to the governorship of Puerto Rico as an independent candidate in the next general election.
