Asdrúbal Vargas is the Chairman of Estudiantes Por la Libertad and he is also a member of the International Executive Board.
I remember being a young student trying to promote libertarian ideas in Costa Rica without any kind of support. Every day was a new battle because I had to face the well-organized groups against liberty. These challenges made me wonder: Is it worth it? Is liberty worth it?
In an attempt to answer that question, I joined SFL back in 2012 and I must say that this decision truly changed my life. I had the opportunity to join a network of thousand of students, who shared my passion and love for a free society, from places where I never imagined it was possible to promote a free enterprise. There were people from Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America. We all spoke different languages and had different costumes, but what united us was the desire to achieve a better world.
I remember being inspired by these individuals; experiencing this made me think: Liberty is worth it all. Ever since, a group of extraordinary leaders from Latin America and I assumed the challenge of creating a new branch of SFL in our region: EsLibertad. Today I get to see leaders from Mexico to Argentina fighting for a freer Latin America, and this is the every day fuel I receive to keep on fighting for liberty.
