Luis is originally from Argentina and moved to Boston in 2000 to learn English. Luis graduated from Bunker Hill Community College with an Associates Degree Arts and Business. After graduation, he applied to the Metropolitan College while working at the City of Boston and graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in Management.
Luis currently works with the City of Boston’s Commission on Affairs of the Elderly, as the Area Agency on Aging Program Monitor. Daily tasks include controlling and reviewing reports from the 24 sites around the city that are funded through the Older Americans Act (OAA), as well as supporting the improvement of the services that they offer to Boston’s seniors. Having developed a special connection to this work, Luis believes helping seniors has triggered fond memories of when he lived with his grandmother. She taught Luis a lot about gardening and provided him with great examples of how to respect people and how to be helpful to others.
Luis believes that working for the City of Boston provides many opportunities to help the community and to be in contact with people with different realities.
Luis is a proud homeowner in the Hyde Square neighborhood of Jamaica Plain in Boston. “My new life in this new city allowed me so many possibilities, such as being able to find a job, buy a home, and study.”I am a member of the Latinx ERG because...
It is one of the places where I can relate to others with similar goals or experiences, a place to share information and be able to expand my networking opportunities.
The Latinx ERG also helps to lead the diversity and inclusion process that the City of Boston has defined within the organization. Being member of the LatinX ERG is very important because impacts in our workforce, workplace and for extension to the population that we serve. And not the last, because I/we have a lot of fun moments and we have great social events that fortified us all.
