David H. Moreno


David H. Moreno will be a senior at Marymount University in fall 2021, studying communication with an emphasis on journalism.

Over the past year, he was a reporter for Marymount’s student newspaper, The Banner, and was subsequently promoted to opinion editor. In fall semester 2021, he will become The Banner’s managing editor.

For The Banner, he has written about everything from the Black Lives Matter movement to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Moreno was born in Alexandria, Virginia, but spent much of his childhood in Honduras, where he witnessed many incidents of violence and political corruption and was the victim of a home invasion.

These experiences impelled him to pursue a career in journalism with a strong interest in investigative journalism and covering untold stories both in the Washington area’s Latinx communities and internationally.

Moreno believes his bilingual and bicultural background enables him to approach and understand the experiences of people from different backgrounds.
